This is 21-year-old Jonnah from Liberia. She lives near West Point, which is one of the most populated areas in Montserrado County. Jonnah is single and was able to complete 12th grade. For the past eight months now she has been operating a table selling palm oil in the local market. She spends ten hours a day, six days a week at her business. Jonnah started the business with financial help from her mother, and likes her business because she has good customers and makes a steady profit. Mostly she takes a taxi to get her products to her table.
Jonnah is requesting a loan to purchase more palm oil for her business. Her plans are to one day build her own house and become an international business woman. She would like to say thanks to the lenders who support BRAC Liberia, Kiva's field partner.
