This is 43-year-old Minever M. from Liberia. She operates a shop selling charcoal in the Congo Town area of Liberia. It is one of the most populated areas in Montserrado County. The area boasts one of the best standards of living in the county with affordable living, good roads, access to water and lots of transportation options. Minever M. is married with two children aged 14 and 20 years old. She is a high school graduate. For the past two years she has been selling charcoal in the local market. She started the business with money given to her by her mother. She enjoys her business because it gives her more money.

Her plans are to build a house and educate her children.
