Rebecca lives in New Kru town which is one of the oldest communities in Liberia. Living conditions there are bit difficult due to the high rate of crime, fewer bathrooms, filthy conditions and overpopulation. Interestingly, the rooms are bit cheaper, one has the option of traveling, the area contains one of the biggest markets in Liberia and food rates are low.

Rebecca is married, and her husband works in a beer factory in Monrovia. They both have four children aged between 15 and 25. Only two of their children currently attend school and live at home. Rebecca was unable to attend school, but she started a table market business where she bakes and sells bread. With the loan proceeds she will buy flour, sugar and oil to increase her sales. Her problem is fewer goods on her table. She has no additional problems for now. With a little money from her husband she managed to established this business, and learned by observing other businesswomen ten years ago. She stated that she enjoys the fast buying from costumers. She dreams of moving from a table business to a shop business and to improve her children's lives.
