Please meet 36-year-old Felecia 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.
Felecia completed 9 grades and is single. She has two children ages 18 and 7. They are in school and live at home.
Felecia has owned her own shop selling used shoes for the past seven years. She will use the loan proceeds to purchase more used shoes for her business. On average, she works 8hours at her business. She started her business with money from her mother. She transports her merchandise by taxi. She cites small income as her biggest challenge. Her favorite part of her business is the profit making. In the future, she would like to build a house.
She thanks you in advance for your support!
