Miatta is 24 years old and lives in Kakata, the capital city of Margibi County, which is the highest production rubber plantation in Liberia. She is single with two children, ages 5 and 1. They all live at home and only one is in school. Miatta was unable to attend school and, for four years now, she has been selling red oil (palm oil) around her community and market. She started this business with small goods from her friend as a "sell-pay" (take the goods on credit, sell the goods, pay the principle and have the profit). She learned this trade from her friends. She enjoys her business because she makes good profit. She is requesting a loan to purchase more red oil (palm oil) for her business. She hopes to expand her business.
