A loan helped to buy more red oil, rice, meat and other items to sell.


Marie's story

Marie was born in 1975 and is a mom of 4 schoolgoing children. She is a mother who would do anything to give her family happiness and to see her children graduate from school. She has endured the challenges she faces in life for the success of her family.

She has hours of hard work and dedication in her business where she sells red oil, rice, meat and other items. In order to always have quality goods she applies for a loan with BRAC Liberia a KIVA field partner. The loan will be used to buy more red oil, rice, meat and other items to sell.

The income she makes from selling is used to meet the basic needs of her household. She has had 10 years of business experience. Due to this she is not facing any problem with her business.

Her dream is to build houses and to continue sending her children to school.

She says thanks and gives appreciation to the Brac and Kiva community for their support.


This loan is special because:

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