Cecelia's story

Meet Cecelia, 47 years old. She is married and has 5 children, four of whom are presently in school and all live at home. Cecelia attended school up to 6th grade. She runs a business as a main source of income where she sells dry pepper and fresh pepper. She learned this trade from her grandmother and started to sell with some earnings from her husband. She has had this business for 15 years now. She transports her supplies to her business site by the use of car. She sells Monday through Saturday. For the improvement of her business, Cecelia had asked for a loan through BRAC Liberia and KIVA Field Partner. She plans to use the loan to buy more dry pepper and fresh pepper to sell to her good clients. She likes her business because it gives her money each day she sells. In the future, she wants to own a bigger business. She says thanks to BRAC and KIVA Community.
