Mamie's story

Meet 43-year old Mamie from Liberia. She is married with 3 children. The ages of her kids are 10 through 20. All of her children are currently attending school while living at home. Mamie never had the opportunity to attend school. Mamie runs a business which sells cooked food. She has been in this business for the past 8 years now and works 15 hours per day, 6 days a week. She has had no problems with her business. Mamie learned the business from her mother and started selling with some financial help from her husband.

Mamie requested this loan from Brac to purchase more ingredients that will be used to prepare food to sell and increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve their standard of living. In the future she would like to continue educating her children and increase her business. She says thanks and gives appreciation to Brac and the Kiva community for their support.
