Patricia's story

Patricia is 56 years old. She is married and has 3 children who live at home while attending school.

Patricia sells cooked food and provisions. She started to sell with some earnings from her husband and learned this trade from her aunty. For the past 20 years, she has operated her business. She likes her business because it gives her profits.

For the improvement of her business, Patricia requires a loan through BRAC Liberia and Kiva. The loan will be used to buy more ingredients to prepare cooked food and provisions to sell in order to generate greater profits.

In the future, Patricia wants to continue her children's educations. She is highly grateful for the financial support rendered.


This loan is special because:

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