Liberatha is 27 years old. She is married to a mason and has five children who are between five and sixteen years old. All of her children go to school. Liberatha has a beauty salon for ladies and she has run this business for ten years. She would like to get a loan to buy more beauty products, such as hair care and styling products, to sell.
Liberatha says the profit from this business will be used to buy a motorbike to help with transportation. She hopes to have a business valued at over a million Rwandan francs in the future.
