Deddeh is 33 years old and lives in the West Point area, which has the most populated market in Montserrado County. She is living with her fiancée who is selling charcoal by the bag. Together, they have three children, ages between 18 and 8. The children are in school and live at home. Deddeh describes herself as a hard-working person.
For the past seven years, Deddeh has been running a shop where she sells sugar, flour, pepper, rice, etc. in the local market. She likes her business because of the ways in which her customers buy from her. She started this business with money given to her by husband. Every day, Deddeh walks to buy her inventories since her shop is close to the local wholesaler.
Deddeh is requesting a loan to purchase more goods for her business. She plans to buy a piece of land and build a house. She would like to say thanks to the lenders who support BRAC Liberia Microfinance Company Limited, which enables small business people to increase their business volume.
