Ruth's story

Meet 37 year-old Ruth from Liberia. She is married with 6 children; 5 of her children are currently attending school while living at home. Ruth attended school up to high school. Ruth runs a business which sells red oil, rice, vita and other items. She has been in this business for the past 19 years now and works 12 hours per day, 6 days a week. Ruth requested this loan from Brac to purchase more red oil, rice, vita and other items 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.
