Mamie's story

Mamie is 46 years old. She is a single parent with two children who are 20 and 23 years old. Her children are presently in school while living at home. In order to take care of her children, Mamie runs a business in a shop where she sells beverages.

Mamie started this business with money given to her by her brother, and her mother taught her how to sell. She has been doing this business for 12 years. She works very hard to please her customers. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business. She has had no problems with her business. She spends 11 hours each day running her business.

Mamie applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and KIVA Field Partners. With this loan she will buy more beverages to continue selling. She likes her business because sales are fast and make profit. In the future she would like to send her children to school. She wishes to say thanks.
