Felicia's story

This is 35-year-old Felicia. She is a hardworking businesswoman who is living together with her partner along with six children. She never had the opportunity to attend school. She runs a business where she sells sugar, butter, donuts, juice and other food items. She has been selling for the past 12 years and has had no problem with her business.

She asked for a loan from BRAC Liberia, Kiva's field partner. She is seeking the loan to buy more sugar, butter, ingredients to make donuts, juice and other food items to sell and increase her business in order to ensure she meets her customers' demands. Her love for her business continues to grow every day.

She enjoys interacting with her customers because it enables her to grow her customer base. Through her profits, she will be able to pay back the loan and improve her standard of living. In the future she would like to build and get a job. She says thanks for your support.
