Janiestta is 36 years old and is single with four children between three and 17. Her children are in school and they live at home. Janiestta lives in Montserrado County, which is the largest county in Freeport and the number one commercial county in Liberia. For the past eight years, she has been selling charcoal. Janiestta started her business with a loan that she took from a club (group saving account), and she learned her business from friends. Her favorite part about her business is the profit she generates every day.
Janiestta is requesting a loan to purchase more charcoal to sell. In the future, she wants to educate her children and build a house. Janiestta appreciates the supporters of BRAC and she promise to pay back her loan.
