Mary Jean's story

All of Mary Jean's hard work paid off as her business is continuously growing. She would like to thank the community of Kiva for helping and trusting her with their finances. She was able to buy the grocery items needed in her store and more customers patronized her products. From her earnings, she was able to send her children to school and pay their household bills. Aside from her variety store, she also sells beauty products for added income.

To keep her business running, she would like to ask for financial assistance that will be used in buying more toiletries, rice, soda, chips, canned goods, charcoal and other goods for her store. Her loan will also help her in buying beauty products. She hopes that her business will be established and dreams that her children will finish college.

Mary Jean is a member of the Center for Community Transformation and meets weekly with her fellowship partners to share her life’s testimony and business experience with her fellow 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 relationship among partners and pay Micro Finance loans.
