A loan helped to purchase more cement to sell.

Oretha's story

Meet 49-year-old Oretha from Liberia. She is married and has eight children. All of her children are attending school and live at home. Oretha is a high school graduate. For the past 15 years, she has been selling cement. She started to sell with her own little savings and her husband taught her how to sell. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She sells Monday through Saturday, nine hours daily.

She requested this loan from BRAC, a Kiva field partner to purchase more cement to sell. She likes her business because it gives her profits on every selling day.

In the future, Oretha would like to deal in an international business. She says thanks and gives appreciation to BRAC and the Kiva community for their support.
