A loan helped to buy more ingredients that will be used to prepare cooked food to sell.


Janet's story

Janet is 38 years old. She has four children. All of her children are presently in school and live at home. Janet went to school until fourth grade.

She runs a business where she prepares cooked food to sell. Her mother taught her how to sell and also gave her money to start the business. She has had no problems with her business. She sells Monday through Saturday. She likes her business because sales are profitable.

She has applied for a loan with BRAC Liberia. The loan will be used to buy more ingredients that will be used to prepare cooked food to sell in order to generate greater income. In the future Janet wants to build a shop. She is grateful for the financial support from BRAC and Kiva.


This loan is special because:

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