Tawah is 45 years old and lives in New Kru Town, one of the oldest communities in Liberia, that is well-known, and where there is lots of choice. Tawah is married and she stopped her education at elementary level since her parents did not put her in school.
For the past nine years Tawah has been running a shop where she sells fashion clothes such as jean trousers, dresses, and lappa (traditional cloth) slippers etc. She started this business by selling on a market table. With the little money that she received from this market-table business she managed to established her current business, and learned this way of selling from her friends.
Tawah is very happy with her business because she makes a lot of profit and has more customers because she sells quality products. She is requesting a loan to buy more fashion clothes such as jeans trousers, dresses, and lappa (traditional cloth) slippers etc to increase her business. Tawah's plans are to build another shop and educate her children. She is kindly asking the lenders to be patient with them and keep lending them some money to improve theirs' and their children's lives.
