Elizabeth's story

This is Elizabeth from Liberia, who lives in the Caldwell area in Montserrado County. (This area is becoming one of the higher populated communities in Montserrado because of good roads, quiet, and lower house rental rates.) Elizabeth is 43 years old, married, with five children between 7 and 25 years old, who are in school and living at home. She stopped her education at the 7th grade level.

For the past 11 years, Elizabeth has been selling rice, oil, onion, pepper, etc., from a table in the local market. She will use the loan to buy additional goods for resale. She established the business with a loan from her husband. She encounters few problems in her business, other than customers not having enough money and having to buy on credit. She enjoys the independence her income gives her.
