Sarah lives in Sinkor in Montserrado County where living conditions are almost like the capital city of Liberia. It is well known as the best laid out place in Liberia. She is 46 years old and married with two children, ages 26 and 8, who are both in school and live at home.
For the past ten years Sarah has been selling spare ribs in the community market. She started this business with help from her husband and learned this way of selling from her mother. She spends 9 hours a day with her business, and she uses a taxi most of the time to get her goods to her table.
She said that she is business-minded and likes her business because it gives her some profit. Sarah is requesting a loan to buy more spare ribs to increase her sales. She wants to get more money to educate her children.
