A loan helped to buy more provisions to resell.

Bendu's story

Bendu is 26 years old, from Liberia. She lives with her partner and their 8-year-old who is at home and schooling.

Bendu is a hardworking business-woman who sells provisions. She has been operating her sales business for 9 years now. She learned how to sell from her mother and her father gave her some money to start the business. She uses car to transport supplies to her business site. She sells Monday through Saturday, 10 hours per day. She likes her business because it makes a profit for her and she is proud of her business because the profits send her child to school.

To continue selling, she applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva Field Partner. With this loan she will buy more provisions to sell in order to further build her business.

Bendu's dreams for the future are to build a store and also build a house for her child. She wishes to say thanks to BRAC and Kiva.
