This is Helena from Liberia. She lives in the Caldwell area in Montserrado County. This area is becoming one of the more populated communities in Montserrado due to some options such as good roads, quietness, and the lower price of house rental.
Helena is 33 years old. She is married and has 2 children, ages 7 and 13, who live at home and attend school. Her husband is a builder. She has been running a table where she sells cosmetics. She is asking for a loan to buy enough cosmetics to increase her sales. She complains that the price of cosmetics is the major problem she faces now.
She started this business with a little money from her husband. She enjoys her business because she makes her own money, and she is so proud of her business because it makes her independent. Her plans are to one day own a house, and to see her children attending university in the future. She appreciates the supporters of BRAC Liberia.
