Oretha's story

Here is Oretha from Liberia. Presently she resides in the Buchanan area, the capital city of Grand Bassa County. The county is located by the sea and is known for its beaches and fish. In addition, many logging companies are also located in the city. People in Buchanan are known in the country for their love of fufu, a cassava-based dough typically eaten with soup or sauce.

Oretha is 23 years old, single, and she has two children aged 1 and 7 years old. One is currently attending school and they all live at home. Oretha has a small shop where she has sold rice, oil, bread, milk, soap, etc for the past five years. She will use the loan proceeds to purchase more rice, oil, bread, milk, soap, etc.

On average, she works ten hours a day at her business from Monday through Saturday. She started her business by selling cooked food and learned selling from her sister. She transports her merchandise by shared taxi. Her favorite part of her business is the profit she makes. In the future, she would like to build a store. She is grateful for your support!
