Naomi is 33 years old. She is married, with two children who are in school and are between 5 and 12 years old. They all live in Montserrado County which is noted as the commercial city in Liberia.
Naomi is a high school graduate. For two years now, she has been involved in the sales of fashion clothes, such as blouses, jeans, trousers, and dresses. Most interestingly, she has many customers since she sells quality products. She started her business with a loan from her husband and learned this way of selling from her friends. She spends 12 hours on her business since her house is closer to her shop. One of the problems she faces is transportation costs.
Naomi is requesting a loan to purchase more fashion clothes (blouses, jeans, trousers, dresses) to increase her sales. She plans to open another shop in the near future and to see her children out of college.
