$300 amount her and her family, friends are investing

 Felecia is a hardworking business woman with a keen business sense. She has been traveling to Guinea (which is a neighboring African country) to purchase lapas, a beautiful colorful designed fabric used for women’s clothing. With the investment she will use her money to open up a store to sell more goods.  She plans to expand her business by adding other essential goods. She wants to add slippers and sandals, essential food items such as flour, sugar, cartoons of milk powder and rice. With the expansion she would like to sell cell phone cards, rubber discs and buckets as well.



Paying it Forward
