This is Sarah from Liberia. She resides in Buchanan, the capital city of Grand Bassa County. The county is located by the sea and is known for its beaches and fish. In addition, many logging companies are also located in the city. People in Buchanan are known in the country for their love of fufu, a cassava-based dough typically eaten with soup or sauce.
Sarah is 34, married with two children aged 1 and 10. They all are currently living at home and only one is in school. Sarah has owned her own small local shop business selling soap, flour, sugar, rice etc for the past 10 years. She will use the loan proceeds to purchase more goods such as soap, flour, sugar and rice. On average, she works 12 hours per day at her business from Monday to Saturday. She started her business with a small amount of money from her husband. She transports her merchandise by shared taxi. She cites the rainy season as her biggest challenge. Her favorite part of her business is the profit. In the future, she would like to build a modern house.
She is grateful for your support!
