Ladia lives in West Point, one of the most populated and well-known markets in Montserrado County. She is 40 years old and married to a businessman. They have five children between the ages of 2 and 24, who are in school and live at home.
For 10 years Ladia has been operating a shop in her community, where she sells soft drinks, cold water and phone credit cards. She received a little amount from her husband to start her business, and she learned to manage it from her mother. Ladia likes her business, because she makes more profit.
She is requesting a loan to purchase more soft drinks, cold water, and phone credit cards to resell in her business. Ladia plans to build a house for her children.
