Rebecca is a 45-year-old businesswoman from Liberia. She is married and has three children between the ages of 25 and 7; two are currently attending school, and they all live at home. She completed grade 4 before starting her business.

She describes herself as a hardworking woman. She lives and works in Paynesville North, which has the largest market in Montserrado County. The area is home to “round-time marketers,” the local term for traders who travel to the interior regions of the country to purchase goods to sell throughout the county. Because of this, there is a large number of wholesalers operating in the area who distribute to the markets in the county, including supplying the capital city of Monrovia.

Rebecca has a shop business which has sold soap, milk, sugar, rice, candy, etc., for the past 10 years. She works 15 hours each day at her business. Her greatest challenge in business is payment of rent for the shop.

She intends to use the loan to buy more soap, milk, sugar, rice, candy, etc. She started her business by her husband. She likes her business because she makes a profit. She hopes to one day build her own shop.

She wants to thank the Kiva lenders in advance for their help.
