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


A loan helped to buy more charcoal, hair extensions, and bedsheets to sell.


Marie's story

Marie is 28 years old and a high school graduate. She is a single mother with 3 children. They all attend school and live at home.

Marie mainly sells charcoal, hair extensions, and bedsheets to earn a living. She has been a trader for 6 years. Marie transports supplies to her business site by using a car. She got her start-up capital from her father. Her mother taught her how to sell.

Marie likes her business because it helps her family a lot. To maintain her business, Marie applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva partner. With this loan, Marie will buy more charcoal, hair extensions, and bedsheets to sell to earn more income.

In the future, Marie wants to build houses and continue her children's education. She wishes to say thanks.
