Many small merchants lost their businesses in the earthquake. Many lose their businesses to fires in the marketplace. Widows often struggle to work while also raising their children and a loan can help them start a business which allows them to do both. COTEDIH loans money to merchants which they invest into their businesses and then repay along with interest after either 3 months, 6 months or one year depending on the term of the loan.
