Mary's story

Mary is 50 years old. She is married with 7 children, 4 currently attending school while living at home. Mary runs a business which sells cooked food. She asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia, KIVA field partner. The loan will be used to buy more ingredients that will be used to cook food to sell, expand her business and to help her family’s financial situation. She has been selling for the past 20 years and is very proud of her business. She learned the trade from her mother and started selling with some financial help from her husband. She is very grateful to BRAC and KIVA for their support. In the future she would like to increase and continue sending her children to school.
