Korpo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more charcoal to sell.
Meet Korpo, 48 years old. She lives with her husband along with 5 children. Four of her children are presently in school and all live at home. Korpo's spouse works as a driver to earn extra income. In order to help her husband with everyday household expenses, Korpo sells charcoal in her neighborhood. She learned this trade from her mother and started to sell with some earnings from her husband. She has been a hardworking business woman for 11 years without any problems. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She likes her business because it gives her money on every selling day. She has asked for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva Field Partner. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal to sell in order to repay her loan installment and increase her sales. In the future, she wants to build her house and continue her children's education. She is highly grateful for the financial support rendered.
