Marie's story

This is 49-year-old Marie from Liberia. She resides in Paynesville South, a suburb just outside Monrovia. The area is one of the most populated areas in Montserrado County, with one of the best standards of living in the country. Good roads, access to clean water, affordable rents and plentiful transportation options make Paynesville South one of the most popular places to live.

Marie is married with three children aged between 17 and 35. She runs a business selling used clothes from a table in the local market. She describes herself as a serious businesswoman. She started her business 10 years ago, using money given to her by her mother. Typically, she works 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday to Saturday at her business and transports her goods to her business by bus. She cites her greatest challenge to be small capital. She is proud of her business because she supports her home.

Using the proceeds of this loan, she intends to purchase more used clothes to resell. In the future, she plans to build her house. She sincerely thanks you in advance for your support.
