Melvina's story

This is 22-year-old Melvina from Liberia. She resides in Paynesville South, a suburb just outside Monrovia. The area is one of the most populated areas in Montserrado County, with one of the best standards of living in the country. Good roads, access to clean water, affordable rents and plentiful transportation options makes Paynesville South one of the most popular places to live. Melvina is unmarried and has an 8-year-old child, who is currently attending school and living at home. She runs a table business selling slippers in the local market. She describes herself as a serious businesswoman. She started her business two years ago, using money given to her by her mother. Typically, she works at her business from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and transports her goods to her business by bus. She cites her greatest challenge as having little capital. She is proud of her business because it supports her home. Using the proceeds of this loan, Melvina intends to purchase more slippers. In the future, she plans to build her own house and educate her child. She sincerely thanks you in advance for your support.
