A loan helped to buy more fruits to sell.

Thelma's story

Thelma, 37 years old, is from Liberia. She is a single mother with three children; they are in school and live at home. Thelma attended school until 12th grade.

She is a strong business woman who sells fruits. She works very hard to provide for them. Her sister taught her how to sell and has been managing her sales for nine years. She uses a motor bike to transport supplies to her business site.

This loan will help to buy more fruits to sell in order to further build her business. She likes her business because it helps to support her family. In the future, Thelma would like to deal in an international business. She wishes to say thanks.
