Varbah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more oil, pepper, Vita, bitter ball, etc., for her business.
Varbah is 49 years old and lives in West Point, which is the most populated market in Montserrado County. She is married with three children between 21 and 34 years old. She did not go to school, and she is a business woman. Her husband sells children's used clothes. Supporting her home makes her proud of her business. Over the past ten years, she has been running a table in the local market without facing any serious problems. This business started with a little money she got from her mother. She sells six days every week, spending 10 hours on her business. She is requesting a loan to purchase more oil, pepper, Vita [a juice drink made by Coca Cola for the African market], bitter ball [an eggplant-like vegetable], etc., for her business. Her dream is to have a house for her children.
