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

A loan helped to buy more bags of charcoal to sell.

Sophia's story

Sophia is 39 years old and divorced with 4 children. All of her children are schooling and live at home.

Sophia is a hardworking business woman who sells bags of charcoal. She has been operating her sales for 10 years now. She says at times sales are slow. She sells Monday through Saturday, 8 hours per day.

She started to sell with her own savings. To maintain business, she applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia and Kiva's Field Partner. This loan will help her to buy more bags of charcoal to sell to her good clients. She likes her business because it helps to support her family.

In the future, she would like to build her house. Sophia wishes to say thanks.
