Martha's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more dry fish to sell.
Martha is 43 years old. She is single with 4 children. All of her children are presently attending school while living at home. She attended school up to 6th grade. Her main source of income is business; mainly selling dry fish. She started a few years back with an objective of increasing her business. She has applied for a loan with BRAC Liberia. The loan will be used to purchase more dry fish to sell and increase her business. She is hopeful that with increased inventory, her sales will also improve, thus bettering her finances to provide for family. She learned the trade from her sister and started selling with some financial help from her sister. Martha is grateful for the financial support from the funders that will boost her. In the future she would like to increase her business and continue sending her children to school.
