• Fatu has a small store selling toothpaste, soap, oil, and other dry goods. She feels she can increase her business and profit if she is able to buy large bags of rice to sell and lower the price for others to afford it.  She is saving money to send her daughter to college.

About The Project

$850 needed to purchase a lot of products
$150 invested by herself and family

Fatu started her business in 1997 with only $27LRD (which is a very small amount) in Buchanan, selling dry goods from a table at the market. With strong determination, she was able to grow her business. With your investment she would like to purchase rice, (the main food staple in Liberia) in very large quantities. This will enable people in her community to purchase rice more easily. At times, just simple staples are hard to find. In her shop she sells toothpaste,soap, cooking oil, battery, copy books, sugar, salt, onion, rice by the cup etc. In 1995 she purchased land, 1997 she and her husband built a house. 2016 she built a shop on her land. Because of her determination ,her business continues to expand and progress. 

..."people in my community will find it very easy to get such product" (rice) says Fatu


Paying it Forward

Currently she employs 2 people. If she is able to get investments, and buy a generator, she will pay it forward by sharing her electricity with her neighbors.  In May she helped a young girl to start a business selling bread and butter so she could sustain herself.
