Basaid's story

Basaid is 27 years old and lives in Gardnersville, one of the early communities in Liberia; it is well-known.

He is married, and is a high school graduate. He has a two-year-old child who stays at home.

For a year now, he has been selling rice, oil, and other items from a shop in his community. He makes lots of profit since he is the only one who is involved in this business in his community. One of the problems he is facing is he has less income.

He is requesting a loan to purchase more rice, oil, and other items for his business.

His plan is to build a decent house and educate his children.
