Oretha is 47 years old and lives in Sanniquille, the capital city of Nimba County which is rich in natural resources. The living conditions are much better in the capital city, and it is the second most populated county in Liberia.
Oretha did not go to school, because she has lived all her life in a rural area of Sanniquelle. Traditionally, Oretha is married to a farmer. They both have five children, aged between 18 and 20. All her children are in school since they now live in the City of Sanniquelle. Oretha says she received a little money from her husband who works with an N.G.O to establish her business. She spends 10 hours on her business. One problem she faces is small income. She is requesting this loan to purchase more rice, pepper, vita, oil, etc for this business. Her plan is to one day own a house.
