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

A loan helped to buy more used clothes to sell.

Korto's story

Korto is 38 years old and single with four children. All of her children are schooling and live at home. Korto attended school until 9th grade.

She runs a business selling used clothes in a busy market and earns a great income. This business she has operated for 22 years, and she considers herself a strong businesswoman. She learned how to sell from her sister. She has no problem with her business. She likes her business because it provides her children daily meals.

Korto applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and Kiva's field partner. The loan will enable her to buy more used clothes to sell to her good clients.

In the future she wants to travel and build houses for her children. She wishes to say thanks.
