Barkesa's story

Meet 43-year-old Barkesa from Liberia. She is single with six children. She attended school up to 9th grade. All of her children are currently attending school while living at home.

Barkesa runs a business where she sells different kinds of washing soap and other items. She has been in this business for 10 years and works 15 hours per day, six days a week. She has had no problems with her business.

Barkesa requested this loan from BRAC Liberia to purchase more washing soap and other items to sell. She says the extra income from this loan will help improve her family's standard of living.

In the future, she wants 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.
