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

A loan helped to buy more soap and oil to sell.

Josephine's story

Meet 46-year-old Josephine. She is a widow with six children. Five of her children are school and all live at home. Josephine is a high school graduate. She deals in a business where she sells soap and oil. She got her start-up capital from her late husband and she learned how to sell from her mother. She sells six days a week. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site on weekends. Josephine has been in this business for 10 years now. She likes her business because it helps to send her children to school.

She applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to buy more soap and oil to sell in order to repay her loan installment and increase her sales. In the future she would like own a charcoal warehouse. She is highly grateful for the financial support rendered.
