but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Jerry Rose's story

Jerry Rose has been able to sustain her small "sari-sari" store (variety store) through the loan granted to her. She is glad that through Kiva's initiative, micro entrepreneurs like her are inspired and encouraged to be more diligent in earning their livelihood.

She is again humbly asking for a loan of 20,000 PHP to buy more grocery items, such as rice, coffee, soda, and rice noodles, which she sells at retail. Her store means a lot to her since it has been her source of income for the past two years, and has provided for her family's basic needs. She is thanking God for the good hearted people who support less privileged people like her.

Jerry Rose's dream is for her store to grow, and to be able to send her child to high school and college. Every week she meets with her fellowship group* to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration from the word of God, which she studies.

*All Center for Community Transformation (CCT) community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather to study the word of God, build social capital, and repay micro-finance loans.
