A loan helped to buy more soap to sell.


Maima's story

Maima is 53 years old and married with four children. She attended school up to high school. Maima runs a business where she sells varieties of soaps.

She asked for a loan with BRAC Liberia, KIVA field partner. The loan will be used to buy more soap to sell, expand her business, and to help her family’s financial situation. She has been selling for the past 10 years and is very proud of her business. She learned the trade from her mother and started selling with her savings. She is very grateful to BRAC and KIVA for their support. In the future, she would like to build a house and continue sending her children to school.


This loan is special because:

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