A loan of $1,000 helped to buy merchandise to stock her hardware store.


Mercy's story

Mercy’s an enterprising woman who by means of work and effort has succeeded in building her dreams. She defines herself as a humble, supportive, very hardworking woman who has dreams. Mercy’s 41-years-old and a widow; she has two children she lives with and who she adores and her reason for living. The business she has is a hardware store she started more than 15 years ago in the city of Ambato. The loan Mercy’s asking FODEMI for is to continue adding stock merchandise to her hardware store which has been growing and has acquired a larger number of customers. This investment will help Mercy meet current demand. Mercy’s dream is to continue working in her hardware store and to eventually open branches for her family members to run and with income earned be able to provide her children with university education. She hopes her children will manage the hardware store.
