Garmai's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more charcoal to sell.

Garmai's story

Garmai is 38 years old and married with three children, ranging in age from 11 to 13 years. All of them lived at home while in school.

Garmai never went to school but deals in the business of selling charcoal. After receiving financial help from her husband, Garmai started to sell. Her mother taught her the trade.

She describes herself as a hardworking businesswoman. She has been doing this business for five years, and she explained how the business is good.

Garmai sells from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. She faces no problems with her business.

In order to have more goods, Garmai applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia. With this loan, she will buy more charcoal to sell.

She likes her business because sales are profitable. She feels proud of her business because it provides support for her family.

In the future, she dreams of educating her children and building a house.

She wishes to say thanks.
