Lucy's story

Lucy is a 47-year-old business woman. She is a widow with 6 children; one of her children is still in school and lives at home. She runs a business selling pepper and bitter balls.

Lucy learned how to sell from her friend, and her son gave her money to start the business. She sells Monday through Saturday and uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner.

With the resultant earnings, Lucy is planning to invest more in her business by buying more pepper and bitter balls to sell. She is so proud of her business; it takes care of her. She wants to build a house in the future.
