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

A loan helped to buy more oil, charcoal and rice to sell.

Beatrice's story

This is 36-year-old Beatrice, from Liberia. She is a single mother with four children, all of them currently in school and living at home. Beatrice is a strong businesswoman who sells oil, charcoal and rice. She has been managing her sales for four years, using a car to transport supplies to her business site. Beatrice's friend gave her some funds to start the business and also taught her how to sell. She sells Monday through Saturday, twelve hours daily, and faces no problems with her business. She likes her business because it gives her profits.

Beatrice has asked for a loan to buy more oil, charcoal and rice to sell to her good clients. In the future, she would like to continue educating her children. She wishes to say thanks.
