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

A loan helped to buy corn, beans, rice, washing powder, annatto, coffee, home soup, powder drink mix, ketchup, sardines and cheese to sell.

Mercedes Bernarda's story

Over the course of fifteen consecutive years, Mercedes has been taking care of her grocery store and with the help of her husband she has improved it.

This 42-year-old merchant is the mother of two children who have already made their lives apart but continue to be her driving force. She started with little capital saved and has grown stronger over time.

Mercedes has knocked on the doors of MiCredito, together with Kiva, with the confidence of obtaining a loan that will allow her to buy corn, beans, rice, detergents, annatto, coffee, homemade soups, powdered soft drinks, ketchup, sardines and cheese.

Her dream is to turn her grocery store into a general store.
