Nancy's story

This is 45 years old Nancy, from Liberia. She is married and has 2 kids whose ages are 3 and 9 years. Both of her children are schooling and live at home. Nancy is a high school graduate.


She sells drinks, cooked food, water and puf puf. She learned how to sell by herself. She says at times sales are slow. Nancy has been operating her sales for 4 years now. She sells Monday through Saturday. She likes her business because it helps to pay her children tuition and she is proud of her business because it makes her an independent woman.


To continue her sales, Nancy requires a loan through BRAC Liberia, a KIVA Field Partner. With this loan she will buy more drinks, water and ingredients that will be used to prepare cooked food and puf puf to sell in order to repay her loan installment and increase her profits.


In the future she wants to buy a land and build her house. She is highly grateful for the financial support rendered.
