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


A loan helped to buy more materials such as fabric, thread, buttons and lappa that will be used to sew clothes to sell.


Marthaline's story

Marthaline is 31 years old, and she lives with her partner along with 2 kids. Both of her children are in school and live at home.

Marthaline runs a tailoring shop where she sews clothes. She started this business on a very small skill, and she is proud of the process. Her partner gave her money to start the business, and her mother taught her how to sell. She sells 6 days per week. She faces no problems with her business. For the past 7 years, she has been operating her business. To excel in business, Marthaline applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and KIVA Field Partner. This financing will be used to buy more materials such as fabric, thread, buttons and lappa that will be used to sew clothes to sell in order to repay her loan installment and increase her income. She likes her business because it gives her money on a daily basis.

In the future, Mathaline wants to open a big shop and send her children to school. She is highly grateful for the financial support BRAC and KIVA have rendered.
