Kumbah's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy more dry meat to sell.

Kumbah's story

Meet Kumbah, 41 years old. She lives with her partner along with 2 children whose ages are 8 and 21 years old. Both of her children stay in school and live at home.
Kumbah attended school until 9th grade.

She deals in a business selling dry meat. She has been operating her sales for seven years now and describes herself as a hardworking business woman. She learned how to sell from her friend and started to sell with some funds from her father. She sells Monday through Saturday.

She had asked for a loan through BRAC Liberia and the Kiva Field Partner. She plans to use the loan to buy more dry meat to sell to her regular customers. She likes her business because it gives her more profits each day she sells. She is proud of her business because it provides her basic needs.

Her dream for the future is to have money in order to continue her children education. She says thanks to BRAC and the Kiva Community.
