A loan helped to purchase more dried fish to sell.


Sarah's story

Meet 55-year-old Sarah from Liberia. She is married, with six children. She never had the opportunity to attend school. She runs a business selling dried fish. She has dealt in this business for the past 15 years now and works eight hours per day, six days a week. For the time being she has had no problem with her business.

She requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more dried fish to sell and increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve their standard of living. She is so proud of her business because it helps provide for her needs.

In the future she would like to increase her business. She says thanks and gives appreciation to BRAC and the Kiva community for support.


This loan is special because:

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