A loan helped to buy more drinks and recharge cards to sell.


Rebecca's story

Rebecca is 45 years old. She is living together with her partner along with six children, ranging in age from 7 through 28 years. Two of her children are still in school and live at home. Rebecca went to school until 5th grade. She runs a business as a main source of income where she sells drinks and also sells recharge cards. She started to sell with her own money and her mother taught her the trade. She has been a hardworking business woman for 30 years. She says at times sales are slow. Rebecca uses a car to transport supplies to her business site. She likes her business because it helps to support her.

Rebecca has asked for a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva Field Partner. The loan will be used to buy more drinks and recharge cards to sell to her regular customers. In the future she wants to improve her business and also continue her children's education until college. She wishes to say thanks.


This loan is special because:

It serves low-income individuals in rural Liberia where few alternative funding sources exist.
