Bindu is married, 39 years old, and lives in Magibi county, which is the greatest-producing rubber plantation in Liberia. She lives with her husband and children. All her children are in school and are between the ages of 4 and 10.
Ten years now, she has been selling rubber dishes in the market. She started this business with money given to her by her husband and she learned this way of selling from her mother. The problem she faces is the rainy season.
Bindu is requesting a loan to purchase more rubber dishes (i.e., plates, cups, bowls) for her business. Her plans are to build a house and to educate her children.
