Oretha's story

This is Oretha, 35 years old. She lives together with her partner and 3 children, aged 1 through 16 years. Two of her children are currently in school, and all live at home.

Oretha went to school until 9th grade. She deals in a business selling clothes. She started to sell with some financial help from her partner, and her mother taught her how to sell. She has been in this business for the past 6 years. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site and sells 6 days a week from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm. She likes her business because it gives her profits on a daily basis.

To increase her business, Oretha applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and Kiva. With this loan, she will buy more bales of clothing to sell to her regular customers.

In the future, she wants to build her house and continue her children's education. She is highly grateful for the financial support rendered.
