A loan helped to purchase more used clothes to sell.

Rachel's story

Meet 38-year-old Rachel from Liberia. She is married with 4 children. Rachel attended school up to 12th grade.

Rachel runs a business which sells used clothes to her customers. She has been in this business for the past 13 years now and works 12 hours per day, 6 days a week. She has had no problem with her business.

Rachel requested this loan from BRAC Liberia to purchase more used clothes 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 and continue sending her children to school. She says thanks and gives appreciation to BRAC and the Kiva community for their support.
