Victoria's story

This is 32 year old Victoria. She is married and has 3 children between the ages of 2 and 10, all of whom are in school and live at home.

She has a business of buying and selling dry fish in the general market. She learned this trade from her grandmother and her uncle gave her money to start the business. She has no problems with her business. She transports supplies to her business site by using a taxi. She sells 9 hours each day, Monday through Saturday.

To increase her business, Victoria applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to purchase more dry fish to sell.

She plans to use her profits to help her husband with everyday household expenses. She likes her business because it gives her fast profits. Victoria dream is to improve her business so that her children can continue their education.

She wishes to say thanks.
