Please meet 29-year-old Musukala from St. Paul in Liberia. St. Paul is home to the oldest market in Liberia and is known for its fish, due to its location by the sea. St. Paul is a suburb located just outside Monrovia, past the Free-Port. It is one of the poorer areas and you will often find its residents living in sub-standard housing.
Musukala completed the 11 grade and is married. Her husband is a gas seller. Musukala owns her own 'lappa' business selling lappa (traditional cloth) for the past six years. She will use the loan proceeds to purchase more goods.
On average, Musukala works 9 hours at her business. She started her business with money from her husband. She transports her merchandise by taxi. She cites slow buying as her biggest challenge. Her favorite part of her business is the profit she makes. In the future, she would like to own a house.
She thanks you in advance for your support!
