This is Sara from Liberia. She lives in the Caldwell area in Montserrado County, which is becoming one of the most populated communities in Montserrado because of its good roads, quietness, and lower rents.
Sara is 45 year old, and is married to a businessman. They have four children between the ages of 18 and 25 years. Four of their children live at home and currently attend school. For more than fourteen years, Sara has sold used clothes in the local market, where she works ten hours per day Monday to Saturday. Her main challenge is that she started the business during the rainy season, but she has earned some profit. Sara learned the business from her friends, and started it with money from her husband.
Sara is requesting a loan to purchase more used clothes for her business. One day, she plans to build a house for herself and educate all of her children.
