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

A loan helped to buy more red oil to sell.

Fatu's story

Fatu is 50 years old. She is a single business woman who has two children ages 16 and 21. Both of her children are presently in school while living at home. She has been operating her business for the past 10 years where she sells red oil in the general market.

Fatu attended school up to ninth grade. She describes herself as a hard working business woman. Fatu say that the time sales are slow is her only problem she is faced with.

To continue in business Fatu asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia. The loan will be used to buy more red oil to sell and expand the business. She likes her business because it helps her support her children and it allows her not to be a beggar

She learned the trade from her mother and started the trade with her own money. Each day she sells from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. In the future she would like to build a house and continue sending her children to better schools. She says thanks for your support.
