Oretha is 22 years old and lives in Paynesville North, which has the largest local market in Montsorrade. She is single with a 3-year-old child, which is in school and lives at home. She describes herself as a serious and hardworking person. For the past four years she has been selling palm oil at the local market. She likes her business because it is profitable, and she started this business with money given to her by mother. With a shared taxi she is able to get her goods to her location. She is requesting a loan to purchase more palm oil for her business, and she hopes to one day buy a piece of land and build a house. She would like to say thanks to the lenders who support BRAC Liberia so they are able to help small business people to increase their sales volume.
