Mary's story

Mary is a 40-year-old married woman and has 3 children. Her children are in school and range in age between 12 and 19 years old. They all live in Montserrado County, which is the capital and number one commercial city in Liberia. Mary stopped her education at grade 3.

For nine years, she has been involved in the sale of sweet potatoes and greens. She started her business with a loan from her husband, and she learned this way of selling from her friends. She spends eight hours each day on her business. Low income is the biggest challenge that she faces in her business since she does not have enough money to meet her customers' needs. She is requesting a loan to purchase more sweet potatoes and greens for her business.

She plans to expand her business and to educate her children.
