Marie lives in West Point, Montserrado County, which is noted for being the most commercial city in Liberia. She is 47 years old and has seven children between 10 and 31 years old. Only three of her children are in school and two live at home.
For a year now, she has been selling cold soft drinks and cold water in the local market. One of the problems she faces is small capital. She enjoys the profit she makes every day, and having money for her expenses makes her proud of her business.
She is requesting a loan to purchase more cold soft drinks and cold water for her business.
