Bendu's story

Meet 21-year-old Bendu. She and her partner live together. She is a happy mother with one child, aged 2 years. Her child lives at home.

She is a businesswoman who deals in a business that sells charcoal. She received some money from her husband to start the business and learned the trade from her sister. She often sells from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on a daily basis. She has operated this business for these past years with few problems, although at times sales are slow during the rainy season. She likes her business because it is profitable and it also provides her needs.

To increase her business, she applied for a loan with BRAC Liberia. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal to sell and increase the business.

In the future, she would like to build a house. She considers herself a hardworking businesswoman. She sends thanks for your support.
