She has been running this business for 18 years and hopes to start importing rice to Liberia in the near future. Kebbeh started her rice-selling business with 500 Liberian Dollars given to her by her mother. She is very friendly and talks to customers in order to encourage them to continue buying from her. Kebbeh needs this loan to add to her capital and improve her business. She dreams of helping her children as much as she can, in order for them to have a good future.
