Wrejay lives in Montserrado County, the capital city of Liberia. It is well known as the most commercial city in Liberia. Wrejay is 48 years old and married. Her husband is not working now. They have two children, ages 28 and 9. Only one is in school and lives at home.
For the past seven years Wrejay has been selling ed-doe (a small root vegetable related to taro), palm nuts, potatoes, etc. in the community market. She started this business with help from her husband when he was working, and learned this way of selling from her mother. She spends 10 hours a day with her business, and she uses a taxi most of the time to get her goods to her table.
Wrejay said that she is business minded, and likes her business because it gives her some profit. She is requesting a loan to buy more ed-doe, palm nuts, potatoes, etc. to increase her sales. She wants to get more money to educate her children.
