Christina is 32 years old and lives in the West point area, which has the most populated market in Montserrado County. She is married and has three children between the ages of 3 and 15 years old. Her children are in school and live at home. She describes herself as a hardworking woman, and she has been running a shop, where she sells charcoal in the local market, for the past ten years. She sells six days a week from 7AM to 4PM. She likes her business because customers buy from her, and she started this business with money given to her by her mother. She uses a pick-up every time to get her goods to her business shop. She is requesting a loan to purchase more goods for her business. She plans to build a house for her children. Christina would like to say thanks to the lenders who support BRAC Liberia.
