A loan helped to buy more fish to sell.


Sophie's story

Sophie is 48 years old, married, and has 7 children. They are schooling and live at home. Sophie deals in a business selling fish in the general market. For the past 20 years, she has operated her business and considered herself a hard-working businesswoman. She learned this trade from her mother and her husband gave her money to start the business. She transports goods to her business site by the means of a car. She says she enjoys selling because it gives her money on a daily basis and she is proud of her business because it helps to send her children to school.

To help expand her business, Sophie applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and Kiva. She plans to use the loan to buy more fish to sell to her good clients. In the future, she wants to build houses for her children. She wishes to say thanks.
