Ophelia's story

This is 40-year-old Ophelia. She lives together with her partner along with three children; their ages are 9 through 19 years. All of her children are attending school while living at home. Ophelia is a high school graduate.

She earns her living by selling dry fish. She has managed the business for 10 years. She learned this trade from her grandmother, and her partner gave her money to start the business. She has had no problem with her business. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She likes her business because it gives her profits, and she is proud of her business because it provides her needs.

To maintain her business, she requested a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner, to buy more dry fish to sell to her good clients.

Ophelia plans to use her profits generated from her business to help her children at home. Her dream for the future is to continue her children's education. She wishes to say thanks.
