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

A loan helped to purchase more bathing soap, washing soap and clorox to sell.

Lucy's story

Meet 44-year-old Janet. She is married and the mother of two children, ages are 14 and 18 years. Janet's children attend school while living at home.

In 2015, Janet established her business in order to create another source of income to support her family. She sells bathing soap, washing soap and clorox. Janet learned how to sell on her own. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site on weekends. She has had no problems with her business.

To maintain her business, she requires a loan to enable her to purchase more bathing soap, washing soap and clorox to sell to her regular customers. She likes her business because it helps to support her family.

Janet wants to build a house for her children in the future.

She say thanks to BRAC Liberia and Kiva for the financial support.
