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

A loan helped to buy more fufu to sell.

Nowah's story

Nowah is 43 years old, she is married and has five children. All of her children live at home. Nowah is a hardworking business woman who sells fufu. She learned this trade from her mother and her husband gives her money to start the business. She sells six days a week. She likes her business because it gives her money on a daily basis. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. Nowah requires a loan through BRAC Liberia and KIVA Field Partner. The loan will be used to buy more fufu to sell in order to generate greater profits. In the future she wants to own a bigger business. Nowah is highly grateful for the financial support rendered.
