A loan helped to buy more soap and bags of charcoal to sell.

Lucy's story

Lucy is 38 years old, a single mother with 2 kids. The ages of her children are 9 and 14 years; they live at home. Lucy attended school until 2nd grade. She deals in a business selling soap and bags of charcoal. She has been operating her sales for 15 years. Her sister taught her how to sell and her friend gave her money to start the business.

To continue selling, Lucy applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to buy more soap and bags of charcoal to sell to her good clients. She likes her business because it helps to support her family. In the future, Lucy wants to build her house. She wishes to say thanks to BRAC and Kiva.
