Agnes's story

Meet 21-year-old Agnes from Liberia. She is single with 1 child. Her child is 1 year old and lives at home. Agnes is a businesswoman who sells chicken and chicken feet. She has had deals in this business for the past 4 years now and works 15 hours per day, 6 days a week. For the time being, she has had no problem with her business. She requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more chicken and chicken feet to sell and increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve their standard of living. She is so proud of her business because it helps improve her standard of living. In the future, she would like to continue sending her child to school and to build houses. She says thanks and gives appreciation to BRAC and the Kiva community for their support.
