Lucy's story

Lucy is a Liberian. She is residing in Buchanan, the capital city of Grand Bassa County. The county is located by the sea and is known for their beaches and fish. In addition, many logging companies are located in the county. People in Buchanan are known in the country for their love of 'fufu,' a cassava-based dough typically eaten with soup or sauce. Lucy is 45, married, and has two children, aged 19 and 25. Only one is currently living at home and attending school. Lucy has a shop, where she sells cold water, rice, drinks, and other goods. She has had the shop for the past 13 years. On average, she works ten hours per day at her business, from Monday to Saturday. She started her business with a little bit of capital from her husband. She transports her merchandise by taxi. She cites too few goods in her shop, as her biggest challenge. She enjoys the profit-making of the business. She will use the loan to buy more goods to sell at her shop, including clean water by the sack, rice, and drinks. In the future, she would like to own a house. She is grateful for your support.
