Rena F. lives in Sinkor, an area where the living conditions are almost like those of the people who live in the center of Monrovia. She is 24 years old, single and has six-year-old child who attends school and lives at home. She is a university student.
For seven years now she has been involved in the sale of soap, candles, biscuits, sugar etc. Sometimes her customers take goods on credit and don’t pay on time. She learned this way of selling from her mother, and she likes her business because it makes her self-sufficient. She is requesting a loan to purchase soap, candles, biscuits, sugar etc for her business. Her plan is to build a house.
