Siah is 40 years old and lives in the town of West Point, one of the most populated and well known markets in Montserrado County. She is married and has five children between the ages of 12 and 20 who live at home with her and attend school.
For six years, she has been running a cook shop (restaurant) in the local Market. Sometimes she doesn't have enough money to buy her ingredients by wholesale and has to buy retail, which is much more expensive. She likes the interaction with her customers and learned how to cook from her mother a long time ago. She is requesting a loan to purchase more oil, pepper, rice, fish, chicken foot, and charcoal for her business. In the future, she would like to build a house.
