Theresa's story

Meet 50-year old Theresa from Liberia. She is living together with her partner along with 5 children. All of her children are schooling and live at home. Theresa earns her living by selling charcoal, oil and fufu. She learned how to sell from her friend, and her uncle gave her money to start the business. She has had this business for 12 years now and has no problems with her sales. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She requested this loan from Brac Liberia and KIVA Field Partner to purchase more charcoal, oil and fufu to sell and increase her business. She likes her business because it gives her profits and she is proud of her business because it provides her basic needs. In the future she wants to continue her children's education. Theresa says thanks and gives appreciation to Brac Liberia and the Kiva community for their support.
