Annie is 39 years old and lives at the West Point area which has the most populated market in Montserrado County. She is single and has three children ages 20, 18 and 4. Her children are in school and live at home. She said that in all her days she has not been to school. She described herself as a caring mother.
For the past four years she has been operating her own shop which sells soft drinks and other items in her community. She spends 15 hours a day on her business since her shop is attached to her house. She likes her business because she has a lot of customers, and she started this business with money given to her by her mother. Most of the time she uses a shared taxi to get her stock to her shop.
She is requesting a loan to purchase soft drinks, etc. for her business. She plans to build a house and educate her children. She would like to say thanks to lenders who support BRAC Liberia.
