Helena's story

Meet 50-year-old Helena from Liberia. She is a widow with 5 children. She attended school up to 7th grade.

Helena runs a business selling rice, red oil, sugar, flour, milk, and other items. She has been in this business for the past 14 years now, and she works 15 hours per day, 6 days a week. She has had no problem with her business.

Helena requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more rice, red oil, sugar, flour, milk, and other items to sell and grow her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help to repay her loan on time.

In the future, Helena would like to become a big businesswoman. She sends thanks and appreciation to BRAC and the Kiva community for their support.
