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

A loan helped to buy building materials and the stock needed to continue her canteen business.

Mere's story

Imagine feeling the rain on your face as you slept every night because there was no glass in your window, just a few pieces of lumber. This is what Mere, a grandmother of 4, has had to endure since December 2020. Despite this, Mere can be seen smiling and laughing with relatives, as she knows the importance of gratitude.

That her window is out of order does not bother Mere as much as the heartache she feels knowing that her business is no longer operational. Mere's canteen was her pride and joy, providing a place where her friends could meet to share jokes and stories.

She is requesting a loan to make the repairs to her home and to purchase stock to continue her canteen business. Mere hopes to continue selling groceries, fuels, and cyclone-preparedness items such as torches and bottled water.

Planning is bringing the future into the present, and Mere is confident in her plans as she equips her family and her community.
