A loan of $925 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages for her store.

Mercedita's story

Mercedita is very thankful for the years of help that she is receiving from Kiva and CCT. Her variety store is continuously growing and expanding as she increases her loan. As of now, she and her husband are working hard to provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 40,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her current inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell will result in more profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Mercedita hopes that her product inventory will continue to increase, and she dreams that her family will always be in good health. She meets weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
