Jenneh is 42 years old and lives in Paynesville South. She is married, her husband is a teacher, and they have three children. The youngest is 14, and the oldest 20. She attended school and completed sixth grade. All her children go to school; the oldest is already in college.
Since 1991 Jenneh has been selling rice and soup in a local restaurant. She learned to be a business person from her mother. About her own business, she says sometimes you gain and sometimes you lose but "it makes me strong to stand on my own".
Jenneh has requested a loan to purchase pepper, oil, fish, vita, and other food ingredients. She hopes to support her children until they all finish school.
