Ruth's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase more charcoal to sell.

Ruth's story

Ruth is 37 years old. She is living with her partner along with 2 kids aged 11 and 14 years. Both of her children are schooling and live at home. Ruth is a vendor who sells charcoal by bag and plastic. She learned how to sell from her mother. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site and has had no problems with her sales. Ruth has been operating her sales for 3 years now and sells 6 days a week and 8 hours a day.

Ruth asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia, Kiva Field partner. The loan will be used to purchase more charcoal to sell and expand her business. She is very grateful to BRAC and Kiva for their support. In the future she wants to become a big businesswoman. She wishes to say thanks.
