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

A loan helped to purchase more soap to sell.

Kebbeh's story

Meet 45-year-old Kebbeh from Liberia. She is single with 4 children; 4 of her children are currently attending school while living at home. She never had the opportunity to attend school.

Kebbeh deals in a business which sells soap. 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 problem with her business.

Kebbeh requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more soap to sell and 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 selling with some financial help from her mother.

In the future, she wants to buy land and build houses. She gives thanks and appreciation to BRAC and the Kiva community for their support.
