Safiyatu's story

This is Safiyatu, who is 40 years old. She is a hardworking businesswoman who is living together with her partner and has been blessed with 2 children. Both of her children are currently attending school while living at home. She runs a business, which sells rice. She has been selling for the past 12 years and has had no problem with her business. She asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. She is seeking the loan to buy more bags of rice to sell and add up her business in order to ensure she meets her customers' demands. Her love for her business continues to grow every day. She enjoys interacting with her customers because it enables her to grow her customer base. Through her profits, she will be able to pay back the loan and improve her family’s standard of living. Like any loving parent, her dreams are to continue sending her children to school and to build a house. She says thanks for your support.
