Deborah's story

Deborah is 28 years old, and a high school graduate. She has three children ages 4, 8, and 10 who are in school and live at home. She is running a gas station in the area of New Kru town, where she lives. She has had this business for the past seven years, and makes lots of profits since she is the only female who sells gasoline in her community. Her profits are used for rent, feeling, school fees, and to improve her savings account. Some problems Deborah faces in her business are road conditions and the cost of transporting products to her gas station. She started this business with ten gallons of gasoline in her front yard since she lives closed to the road, and the money for it was given to her by her late father, who was also selling gas. Deborah is requesting a loan to buy more gasoline to sell. Her plan is to expand her business by opening another branch.
