Nenita's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy scrap fabric, needles, thread, and other materials for her rag-making business.

Nenita's story

Nenita's business makes use of scrap materials, which she converts into useful finished products. Here she is shown in her shop where she sews rags out of scrap fabric. These rags are used mostly by drivers, mechanics, stores, and can even be found in households. She is so thankful to the Kiva lenders and the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) for helping her with her capitalization needs. She has repaid her loan, and now she has applied for a new one, to enable her to buy scrap fabric and other materials for making more rags.

Nenita's husband works as a security guard, and together they work hard for the future of their two children. She is a member of CCT and meets weekly with her fellowship partners, to share her life’s testimony and business experience with the fellowship members. She also draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and listening to the Word of God. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 20 members. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social relationships among partners, and pay microfinance loans.
