Please meet 46 year old Emmanuel from Gbarnga in Liberia. Gbarnga is located in the centre of Liberia in Bong County. The majority of people are employed as farmers cultivating crops such as rice, palm oil and cassava.
He completed 12 grades and is married. His wife is a palm oil seller. He has three children between the ages of 26 and 16. Two are in school and they all live at home.
Emmanuel has a shop where he sells rice. He has been in business for 16 years and works 8 hours per day at his business from Monday to Saturday. With this loan, he will buy rice by the bag. One of the greatest challenges that he faces is goods shortage. He transports his goods by truck. He started his business by driving a taxi for his uncle. He is proud of his business because he has his own money for expenses. His plan is to open another shop. He thanks you in advanced for your support!
