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

A loan helped to buy more bags of gari (cassava flakes) to sell.

Helena's story

This is 50-year-old Helena. She has three children and all of her children are currently attending school while living at home. Helena never had the opportunity to attend school. .

Helena runs a business selling gari (cassava flakes) in bags. She asked for a loan from BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. She is seeking the loan to buy more bags of gari to sell and increase her business in order to ensure she meets her customers' demands.

Her love for her business continues to grow every day. She enjoys interacting with her customers because it enables her to grow her customer base. Through her profits, she will be able to pay back the loan and improve her family’s standard of living. Like any loving parent, her dreams are to continue sending her children to school and build a shop.

She says thanks for your support.
