For the past seven years she has been working hard at managing her business. Ma-koia sells six days a week from 7 am to 5 pm. Her husband is a driver, and his truck is used to transport her goods from Guinea to Monrovia. She sells imported slippers for women and children and lappers (locally-dyed cloths.) She learned to sell from her mother, and she first started by selling food in her community. Due to the quality of her goods that she sells, she makes profits every day. She uses some of the profits to buy more goods and help with the expenses of the family. She has requested a loan to purchase more imported slippers and lappers for the business. Her plan for the future is to build a house.
