Weatha 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 over population, but the most interesting part is that rooms are bit cheaper, providing an option of traveling and containing one of the biggest markets in Liberia resulting in the reduced rates for food. Weatha is 41-years-old, married with five children age between three to 21 years old. They are in school and live at home. For the past four years, she has been operating a table market right in front of her house where she sells cold water and doughnuts. She started this business with money from her mother, and learned this way of selling from her aunty. She is requesting a loan to purchase more cold water, flour, sugar, salt, etc. for her business. Her plan is to move from the table business to a shop.
