Oretha happily explains about her life to us (BRAC Liberia) saying: “I am Oretha, 45 years of age. I am a high-school graduate, married and I have three children by my present husband. Our children are between 24 and 30 years old. I have been selling palm oil for ten years now without facing any problems in my business except for my limited capital as I am thinking of expanding my business.
That is why I am asking for a 17,000 LRD loan to buy more palm oil to sell. My business helps in my home, and also paying for my house rent. No one taught me how to sell but I saw other women selling, so I took a small amount of money from my husband to start this business, and now it is helping us. My future plan is to open a shop and build a house.”
