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

A loan helped to purchase more dry fish to sell.

Mamie's story

Meet 46-year-old Mamie from Liberia. She is married with seven children. All of her children stay in school while living at home.

Mamie has a business which sells dry fish. She has been in this business for the past 15 years now and works 15 hours per day, and 6 days a week, and has had no problems with her business.

She requested this loan from Brac to purchase more dry fish to sell and grow her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help to take care of her family, and to educate her children.

In the future she would like to continue sending her children to school and to build a house. She says thanks and appreciation to Brac and Kiva community for their support.
