Taiwah's story

Taiwah is 48 years old. She is a widow with six children. She never had the opportunity to attend school. All of her children are currently attending school while living at home.

She runs a business where she sells clothes and slippers. She asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to buy more clothes and slippers to sell, expand her business and to help her family’s financial situation. She has been selling for the past 20 years and is very proud of her business. She learned the trade from her mother and started selling with some financial help from her late husband.

She is very grateful to BRAC and Kiva for their support. In the future, she would like to build a house for her children and continue sending her children to school.
