A loan helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages to sell and for tricycle maintenance as well.

Carmen's story

Carmen was able to sustain and grow her small general store and transportation business through Kiva's program of giving assistance to microentrepreneurs. Her hard work pays off as she earns enough to meet their daily living needs.

To remain competitive, she needs to offer a wide selection of packaged food and household items. In view of this, she hopes to access a loan to buy more quantities of grocery items like rice, coffee, soda, rice noodles, laundry products and toiletries. She will always be thankful for your noble mission.

Carmen prays for God to prosper her business and lead a quiet and healthy life. Every week, she meets up 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, each composed of 15 to 30 community partners, that gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital and repay microfinance loans.
