A loan of $225 helped to purchase additional fruits to sell.

Modesto's story

Modesto D. S., aged 43, and his wife Hernani, are blessed in their marriage with a happy family. They live in Sabutan, Silang, Cavite. Modesto and his wife run a small fruit stand that sells pineapple, bananas and corn among other items, and which generates 18,000 PHP per month in earnings.

Modesto would like to expand his business with a loan of 10,000 PHP, which he will use to purchase additional varieties of fruit to meet the demands of his customers. He hopes that the additional variety will allow him to generate more revenue and increase the family's savings. Modesto hopes that eventually the business will generate enough revenue to allow him and his wife to have and support children.

Modesto has been a member of Kiva partner, the Center for Community Transformation (CCT), since 2005 and has consistently paid his weekly dues during fellowship meetings* . He is currently on his 12th loan with CCT.

* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. They gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
