Precious's story

This is 37-year-old Precious; she is married and has 3 children; ages 5 through 19 years. All of her children are schooling and live at home. Precious attended school until 12th grade. Her husband works as teacher to earn extra income.

She deals in a business where she sells clothes in a busy market place. She learned this trade from her mother and her husband gave her money to start the business. She has been in this line of business for 9 years now. She uses a taxi to transport supplies to her business site.

To maintain her business, Precious requested for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva Field Partner, to buy more bundles of clothes to sell in order to further build her business and increase her income. She likes her business because sales are profitable. In the future, she wants to build her house. Precious wishes to say thanks.
