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

A loan helped to buy dried fish to sell.

Famata's story

This is Famata, 33, from Liberia. She is living with her partner along with 1 child, aged 10 years. Famata is a high school graduate. She runs a food market selling fish, a business she has managed for 9 years. She learned this trade from her mother, and her partner gave her money to start the business. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She likes her business because it gives her profits, and she is proud of her business because it makes her an independent woman. To maintain her sales, Famata requested a loan through BRAC Liberia and KIVA Field Partner. This loan will be used to buy dried fish to sell. In the future she wants to travel from one country to another. She wishes to say thanks.
