Yassah is 48 years old and lives with 3 with her 5 children. The children at home are between the ages of 16 and 28; they are in school.
She has been running a cook shop (restaurant) for 22 years; she sells delicious Liberian food. One of the problems she faces are complaints from the costumers about the high price of food, since the price of ingredients is high. She says she makes lot of profit since she is the one who prepares the delicious Liberian dishes.
Yassah started this business with help from her husband, and learned this way of selling from her mother.
She is requesting a loan to purchase more rice, Vita, onions, peppers, oil, charcoal, meat, fish, and beans, etc. for her business.
Her plans are to educate her children, and build a house.
