Theresa is 40 years old and lives in Magibi County, which is the largest rubber-producing plantation area in Liberia. She has seven children, who are from 14 to 25 years old. They are attending school and living at home. Her husband is a businessman. Theresa is respected in her family, and also a mother of a supportive home.
For the past seven years, Theresa has been selling used clothes in the market. One of the problems she is facing is that she doesn't have a good location for her selling place. She is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase more used clothes, to resell at her business. Her plans are to expand her business and to build her house.
