Sawon's story

Sawon is 38 years old, from Liberia. She lives with her partner along with four children. All of her children are in school.

Sawon attended school up to the 3rd grade. She works in a business selling charcoal, rice, soap and sugar. She learned about selling from her mother. She sells six days a week and seven hours daily. Sawon uses her car to transport supplies to her business site.

She has asked for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a KIVA Field Partner. With this loan, Sawon will buy more charcoal, rice, soap and sugar to sell to her good clients. She likes her business because it gives her profits. In the future, she wants to travel to other countries and build houses. She wishes to say thanks.
