Elizabeth lives in Sinkor, one of the areas where living conditions are almost like the people who live in the center of Monrovia. She is 49 years old and married with five children between ages of 30 to 20 that are in school but only one lives at home; she is a 9th grade student.
Since 1999 Elizabeth has been involved in the sale of dried fish. Sometimes her customers buy on credit and don’t pay on time. She learned this way of selling from her friend whom she calls "my motivator', and she likes her business because it makes her self-sufficient. She is requesting a loan to purchase dried fish for her business. Her plan is to build a house.
