Marcus lives in Gardnersville, Montserrado County, the major area of marketing, with his three children and wife. He is 45 years old and he is a university graduate. His children are attending school.
Marcus says he saved some money over the years before he graduated from high school to start his business. For four years now he has been running his shop in his community where he sells rice by the bag. A problem he is facing is the road condition to his shop and not enough income because he wants to open another shop in the market. He says his business has brought respect and pride to him, because today his family depends on him for help since he is the most successful one in his family.
Marcus is requesting a loan to purchase a huge quantity of rice for his business. His plan is to see his three children in university, to establish another shop, and improve some of his family's lives.
