A loan helped to purchase more charcoal to sell.

Cecelia's story

Meet Cecelia, who is 45 years old. She is married and has 4 children, one of whom is still in school.

Cecelia is a hardworking businesswoman who sells charcoal. She has been a trader for 20 years. Her mother taught her how to sell, and she started the business with her own savings. She has had no problems with her business.

Cecelia transports supplies to her business site by the use of a car. She sells Monday through Saturday, 12 hours a day. She says that she likes her business because it makes her an independent woman.

To continue selling, Cecelia applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to purchase more charcoal to sell to her good clients. In the future, she wants to improve her business. She wishes to say thanks.
