Munah's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase more dry fish to sell.

Munah's story

Meet Munah, who is 50 years old. She has six children, one of whom is still in school, and they all live at home. Munah attended school until sixth grade.

She runs a business which sells dry fish. Her mother taught her how to sell. She has been a trader for thirty years, and she describes herself as a hardworking businesswoman. She has had no problems with her business. She transports supplies to her business site by car. Munah sells Monday through Saturday. She says she likes her business because it gives her more profits, and she is proud of her business because it helps to support her children.

To continue selling, Munah has applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to purchase more dry fish to sell to her good clients. In the future, she wants to become a big businesswoman. She wishes to say thanks.
