Marie's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more soap, air freshener and slippers to sell.

Marie's story

Marie is 42 years old. She is married with four children. All of her children are currently attending school while living at home.

Marie runs a business which sells soap, air freshener and slippers. She asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia, Kiva's field partner. She will use the loan to buy more soap, air freshener and slippers to sell so she can expand her business and help her family’s financial situation.

She has been selling for the past 11 years and is very proud of her business. She learned the trade by herself and started selling with some financial help from her husband. She is very grateful to BRAC and Kiva for their support. In the future she would like to buy land and build a house.
