Mercy Vieri's story

Mercy is a 30-year-old who lives with her husband and siblings in the Bole district of Ghana. She sells food and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. With her previous Kiva loans, she was able to launch both businesses and reinvest her profits back into them. She is requesting a loan to purchase more food and a refrigerator. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family's basic needs. To repay the social interest on her loan, she will volunteer two-and-a-half hours per week as a CAMFED peer educator, leading life skills sessions for school students on topics such as rights and choices, choosing a career path, and active citizenship. Mercy's dream is to continue her education.
