Theresa's story

Theresa is a 44-year-old business woman from Liberia. She is single and has three children between 30 and 24. She had completed grade six before starting her business. She describes herself as a hardworking woman. She lives and works in Buchanan, which is located by the sea and is the capital city of Grand Bassa County. It is well known for its beaches and delicious fish. Many logging companies are also based in the city. Residents of the city love eating fufu, cassava-based dough typically eaten with soup or sauce. Most people in the city are Bassa speakers, one of the indigenous languages of Liberia. Theresa has had a shop business which sells clothes for the past three years. She works from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day at her business. Her greatest challenge in business is less income. She intends to use the loan to buy more blouses, T-shirts, jeans, trousers, etc. She started her business by selling for her mother. She likes her business because it helps to support her home. She hopes to one day own a house. She wants to thank the Kiva lenders in advance for their help.
