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

A loan helped to purchase more hair extensions to sell.

Christiana's story

Meet 26-year-old Christiana from Liberia who lives with her partner along with two children. She attended school up to high school.

Christiana runs a business selling hair extensions. She has been in this business for the past three years and works 12 hours a day, six days a week. She has had no problem with her business.

Christiana requested this loan from Brac to purchase more hair extensions to sell and increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve their standard of living. In the future she wants to improve her business, to continue sending her children to school and build a house. She says thanks and gives appreciation to Brac and the Kiva community for their support.
