A loan helped to buy more materials that will be used to prepare sour milk and ice to sell.


Doris's story

This is 32-year-old Doris. She is single and has 1 child, who is 15 years old. She went to school up to 12th grade.

She is a business woman that sells sour milk and ice and has been doing this for the past 3 years. Doris describes herself as a strong business woman. The only problem she is faced with is that, at times, sales are slow. Doris sells from 7:00am to 6:00pm, 7 days a week. To increase business, Doris asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia. The loan will be used to buy more materials that will be used to prepare sour milk and ice to sell and expand the business. She transports her business by car.

She started the trade from her own savings and learned the trade by herself. She likes her business because it supports her. In the future, she would like to build a house and increase her business. She says thanks for your support.
