Matenneh's story

Meet 40 year-old Matenneh from Liberia. She is married with 2 children. Both of her children are currently attending school while living at home. Matenneh never had the opportunity to attend school. She runs a business which sells rice, pepper, red oil, charcoal and other items. She has been in this business for the past 20 years now and works 12 hours per day, 6 days a week. Matenneh requested this loan from Brac to purchase more rice, pepper, red oil, charcoal and other items to sell and increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve their standard of living. In the future she would like to continue sending her children to school and improve her standard of living. She says thanks and gives appreciation to Brac and the Kiva community for their support.
