Zoe is 26 years old and had to stop her education at the 6th grade. She is married and the mother of three children between the ages of 9 months and 11 years, two of whom attend school. Her husband earns a living as a driver, and they live in Buchanan Ground, Bassa County, which is a good place to catch fish for sale in the local market. She describes herself as a strong woman who has made herself into a businesswoman and now earns a living by selling chicken feet, pig feet, and beef in the local market. She learned this trade from her friends, and is applying for a loan for 16,000 LRD to buy more items to sell to her customers. She would like to expand her business because this will allow her to do a better job of providing for her family, and allow her to move into a new home in the future.
