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

A loan helped to purchase more Pampers to sell.

Esther's story

Meet 39-year-old Esther from Liberia. She is married with four children. They are currently attending school while living at home. Esther attended school up to 10th grade.

She works in a business which sells Pampers by the bag. She has been in this business for the past 5 years now and works 15 hours per day and 6 days a week. She has no problems with her business.

Esther requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more Pampers to sell in order to grow her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help to take care of her family. She learned the trade from her mother and started her business with her own money.

In the future she wants to increase her business and continue sending her children to school. She says thanks and she is appreciative to the BRAC and Kiva community for their support.
