Hellen's story

Meet 43-year-old Hellen from Liberia. She lives together with her partner and their 3 children. All of her children are currently attending school while living at home. Hellen deals in a business where she sells red oil, vegetable oil, onions, rice, salt and vita. She has been in this business for the past 16 years now, and works 15 hours a day, 6 days a week. Hellen has had no problems with her business.

Hellen requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more red oil, vegetable oil, onions, rice, salt, and vita. She says that the extra income from this loan will help to take care of her family, and educate her children. In the future, she wants to build a house and buy more land.

She says thanks and gives appreciation to BRAC and Kiva community for their support!
