Mardea'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, oil, and rice to sell.

Mardea's story

Mardea is 38 years old. She is a single mother with one child who is 3 years old. Mardea attended school up to the college level. She mainly sells charcoal, oil, and rice and earns a great income. She got her startup capital from her mother.

Mardea sells six days a week and 12 hours daily. She uses a motor bike to transport supplies to her business site. She likes her business because it gives her profits, and she is proud of her business because it has empowered her life.

Mardea applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal, oil, and rice to sell in order to repay her loan installment and increase her profits.

In the future, she wants to build houses. She wishes to say thanks.
