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 plantain, oil, cassava and rice to sell.

Mamie's story

Mamie is 47 years old from Liberia. She is married and has three children; they are schooling and live at home. Mamie never went to school but she is a strong businesswoman who sells plantain, oil, cassava and rice. Her husband gave her some funds to start the business and her mother taught her how to sell. For the past 20 years, she has been running her business and describes herself as a strong businesswoman. Mamie sells Monday through Saturday, 12 hours, and faces no problems with her sales.

Mamie applied for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. With this loan, she will buy more plantain, oil, cassava and rice to sell in order to generate greater profits. She wishes to say thanks.
