Limic
Limic lives in New Kru Town, which is one of the oldest communities in Liberia. The living conditions there are a bit difficult due to the high rate of crime, few bathrooms, filthy conditions, over population, but the most interesting part is that the rooms and food are a bit cheaper, there is the option of traveling, and contains one of the biggest markets in Liberia.

Limic is married, and her husband works as a secretary at his office. They have five children, whose ages are between 32 and 18; only two of their children are currently attending school and live at home. Limic completed grade 11 before starting a cook shop business that sells rice and soup in the market of New Kru Town. With the loan proceeds, she will buy more stock (rice, pepper, oil, dry fish, dry meat, onion, vita, etc.) to have enough food ingredients in stock. She said, "Besides fewer goods on my table market, I have no other problems for now". With a little money from her mother she managed to establish this business, and she learned by observing other cook shop businesswomen twenty-five years ago. She stated, "I enjoy the flow of costumers, and they boast of the food I prepare saying it’s delicious!" Her dreams are to move from a cook shop business to a Restaurant business, build a house, and live a better life in the future.
