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

A loan helped to buy more ingredients that will be used to cook and sell food.

Sophia's story

This is 50-year-old Sophia. She is a widow. She has two children aged 18 and 20. Both of her children are presently in school while living at home. She runs a cook shop which sells cooked food. She has operated this business for the past 22 years.

The problem she is faced with is at times sales are slow. Sophia says her business is her only source of income because of this she has to be very serious with her business to keep it running. She applied for a loan with BRAC Liberia. The loan will be used to buy more ingredients that will be used to cook and sell food to increase the business.

Each day she sells from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. She sometimes transports her goods by car to her business site. She started the business with her own savings and learned the trade from her mother. She likes her business because she is self-employed and it is profitable. In the future she would like to build houses. She would like to say thanks for your support.
