Mary's story

Mary is 48 years old, divorced, and has eight children. She is a hardworking businesswoman who sells rice, pepper, oil, Vita beverages, and charcoal. Mary learned this trade from her mother. Her products are transported to her business site by car or with a wheelbarrow. She has been managing her sales business for 10 years. Mary enjoys her business because it has helped her a lot.

To maintain her business, she is requesting a Kiva loan from BRAC Liberia. Mary will use the money to buy rice, pepper, oil, Vita beverages, and charcoal so that she can generate greater profits. She wishes to express her thanks to BRAC and Kiva.
