Victoria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped buy more rice, meat and other ingredients that will be used to prepare cooked food to sell.
Victoria is 42 years old. She lives with her partner along with 4 children, who are all in school and live at home. Victoria attended school up to college level. She is a vendor of cooked food. She has managed this business for 26 years and describes herself as a strong business woman. She learnt how to sell from her mother and her father gave her money to start the business. Victoria sells Monday through Saturday, 8 hours daily. She uses wheel barrel or bike to transport supplies at her business site. She likes her business because it gives her profits. To continue her sales, Victoria applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and KIVA Field Partner. With this loan, she will buy more rice, meat and other ingredients that will be used to prepare cooked food to sell to her good clients. Her dreams for the future is to build house and continue her children's education. She wishes to say thanks.
