A loan helped to buy more wood charcoal, vita, red oil and other items to sell.


Leola's story

Leola, 38 years old, stays in Liberia and is living together with her partner along with three children. All of her children are currently living at home while attending school. She attended school up to seventh grade.

Her main source of income is business, mainly selling wood charcoal, rice, vita, red oil and other items. She started a few years back with an objective of increasing her business. She has applied for a loan with BRAC Liberia. The loan will be used to buy more wood charcoal, vita, red oil and other items to sell. She is hopeful that with increased inventory, her sales will also improve, thus bettering her finances to provide for her family. She learned the trade from her mother and started selling with some financial help from her partner.

Leola is grateful for the financial support from the funders that will boost her. Her dream is to buy land and build a house.


This loan is special because:

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