Please do meet 40 year old Precelia from Liberia. She operates a table business (a very basic food stall) which sells oil, rice, pepper, vita, etc. in the Paynesville South area of Liberia. It is a suburb of the capital city of Monrovia, and one of the most populated areas in Montserrado County. The area boasts one of the best standards of living in the county with affordable rents, good roads, access to water and lots of transportation options.
She is married, and her husband is a driver. They have three children, between ages 10 and five. All three of them are currently attending school and living at home. She stopped her education in 7th grade, but she is good at managing her business. She describes herself as a hard working woman.
Precelia has been in this table business since 2007. She works nine hours a day, six days a week at her business. Her greatest challenge is small income. She intends to use the loan to buy more oil, rice, pepper, vita, etc. for her business. She started her business with help from her husband. She likes her business because it makes a profit. In the future, she wants to build house.
She wants to thank the lenders for supporting BRAC Liberia and its borrowers.
