Mamie'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 to sell.

Mamie's story

Mamie is 42 years old and lives in Liberia. She is married and has 7 children who are in school and live at home. Mamie went to school but stopped at 7th grade.

She runs a retail business that sells charcoal. For past 15 years, she has been managing her sales. She learned how to sell from her mother, and she stared to sell with some earnings from her husband. She uses a car to transport supplies to her business site.

Mamie has applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva Field Partner. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal to sell to her good clients.

She likes her business because it helps her a lot. Her hopes and dreams for the future are to build a house and increase her business.

Mamie is grateful for the financial support from BRAC and to Kiva for their support.
