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

A loan helped to buy more dishes to sell.

Veronica's story

Veronica is 39 years old; she is married and has four children, three of whom are in school, and all live at home. Veronica attended school until the eighth grade.

She sells dishes in the general market and earns a great income. She has been a trader for seven years. She transports supplies to her business site by using a car. She likes her business because it helps to send her children to school.

To maintain her business, Veronica applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. With this loan she will buy more dishes to sell. She plans to use her profits to help her family at home.

In the future she wants to build her house and continue her children's education. She wishes to say thanks.
