A loan helped to purchase more dry fish and dry meat to sell.

Gbango's story

Meet 51-year-old Gbango from Liberia. She is married with 6 children. She graduated from high school. She runs a business where she sells dry meat and dry fish. She has been in this business for the past 5 years now and works 9 hours per day, 6 days a week. She has had a few problems like the high prices of goods and sometimes sales are slow. Gbango requested this loan from Brac to purchase more dry fish and dry meat to sell. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve their standard of living. In the future she wants to be an international business woman and to build a house. She says thanks and gives appreciation to Brac and the Kiva community for their support.
