A loan helped to buy more charcoal to sell.

Susanna's story

Meet Susanna. She is 48 years old. She is married with three children, ranging age 19 through 27 years. All of her children are presently in school and live at home. Susanna attended school until the 7th grade. She runs a business selling charcoal. She started to sell with her own earnings. Since 8 years ago, Susanna established her business in order to help her husband support their children.

She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She says the main challenge to her business is the high transportation cost in bringing her goods. She sells six days per week and 10 hours per day. She likes her business because it makes her an independent woman.

To continue selling, Susanna applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and KIVA Field Partner. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal to sell in order to repayment her loan installment and increase her profits. In the future, she wants to build a house. She wishes to say thanks.
