A loan helped to buy more lappas and used clothes to sell.


Jayee's story

Jayee is 47 years old. She is married and has 4 children aged between 21 and 27 years old. All of them live at home while in school. In order to help her husband support the home, Jayee runs a business selling lappas [traditional West African cloths, used as garments for women] and used clothes in the general market.

She got her start-up capital from her husband, and she learned this trade from her aunty. She has been operating her business for 20 years now. She says that at times sales are slow. She likes her business because it has empowered her life, and she is proud of her business because it helps her a lot.

Jayee requires a loan through BRAC Liberia, a Kiva field partner. The loan will be used to buy more lappas and used clothes to sell to her good clients. In the future, she wants to deal in an international business. She say thanks to all lenders around the world.


This loan is special because:

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