A loan helped to buy stocks of provisions to sell.

Mercy's story

Forty-nine-year-old Mercy is a resident of Suhum, one of the growing towns in the Eastern Region of Ghana. She is married with three children. For eighteen years, her source of income has been from the operation of a provision shop in the community. Her neighbours are able to get household consumables from her shop with ease and at almost any time of the day, as she opens her shop very early in the morning and closes late at night. She is such a hardworking woman. She is seeking financial assistance to buy stock for the shop so as to meet the growing demands of her customers.

She looks forward to re-investing her profits in the business. She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva supporters for coming to her aid.
