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


A loan helped to buy more dried fish to sell.


Helena's story

Helena is 55 years old and from the Monrovia region. She has eight children; they live at home. Helena attended school up to seventh grade.

She runs a food market selling dried fish. She has been operating her sales for 21 years now. She uses a car or kehkeh to transport supplies to her business site. She sells throughout the week.

To maintain business, she applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. This loan will help her to buy more dried fish to sell to her good clients. She likes her business because sales are fast on a daily basis. She wishes to say thanks.
