Evelyn T.'s story

This is 43-year-old Evelyn T. from Liberia. She lives in Logan Town, one of the early communities in Liberia, which is well-known. She is married, and her husband is a driver. Together, they have five children between the ages of 4 and 22. Only three of their children are presently in school and living at home. Evelyn, herself, completed grade 12th before she started her business.

For the past two years, Evelyn has been running a cook shop (restaurant), where she sells rice and soup. She started in business by selling at a table market, and later she received money from her husband to change her business to a cook shop business. She learned this ways of selling from her friends. She is very happy with her business, because she makes more profit every day and, most interestingly, she meets new people every day.

She is requesting a loan to purchase more food ingredients for her business, including meat, fish, pepper, oil, rice, and the like. Her plan is to educate all her children. She appreciates BRAC Liberia, and the lenders who support small business people.
