Marthaline is 20 years old. She and her fiancee live at Congo Town in Montserrado County which has the largest free port and is the number one commercial county in Liberia. Her fiancee is a driver and they have a one-year-old child at home.
Since 2009, she has been selling plantains, bananas, and oranges in her community market. Sometimes she has fewer customers, but most of the time she makes a lot of money.
