Beatrice lives in West Point, one of the most populated and best-known markets in Montserrado county. She is 27 years old and has two children aged four and six years old, who are in school and live at home. For the past three years she has been running a cook shop (restaurant) in the local market. One of the problems she faces are that the prices are too high. She enjoys the interaction with her customers and the profit she makes daily, and having money to pay her expenses makes her proud of her business. She is asking for a loan to buy more chicken, rice, oil, spare ribs, meat, pig feet, and chicken feet for her business. Her dream is to become a big businesswoman.
