Please meet 26-year-old Naomi, from Buchanan, the capital of Grand Bassa County, located by the sea. Buchanan is well known for its beaches and delicious fish. Many logging companies are based in the city. Residents love eating fufu, a cassava based dough typically eaten with soup or sauce. Most people in the city speak Bassa, one of the indigenous languages of Liberia.
Naomi is single and she completed grades 9 before starting her business. She has two children, aged 3 and 10. One child is in school, and both live at home. Naomi describes herself as hardworking woman.
Naomi has a shop that sells artificial hair and perfume. She has been in this business for 8 years and works from Monday to Saturday, 10 hours per day. With this loan, she will buy artificial hair and perfume.
One of Naomi’s greatest challenges is to increase her sales. She transports her goods by taxi. She started her business with money from her boyfriend. She is proud of her business because of the profit she makes.
Her future plan is to build a house. She thanks you in advance for your support.
