Christine's story

Meet 37-year-old Christine from Liberia. She is married with three children. All of her children are currently attending school while living at home. Christine attended school up to high school. She runs a business which sells peppers. She has been in this business for the past 10 years now and works 12 hours per day, 6 days a week.

Christine requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more peppers 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 would like to build a house. She says thanks and gives appreciation to BRAC and the Kiva community for their support.
