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

A loan helped to buy chemicals and fertilizer for her plantation and also pay for a plough and hire workers to help her husband in the harvest.

Pipiena's story

Pipiena, 23, is married and has only one child. She currently runs a plantation business in her own village. She took a loan as capital money for her business. On her plantation she grows tapioca and yams which she usually sells at the market to earn a weekly profit.

Last February a strong cyclone called Gita hit Tonga and affected most of the Tongan people lives. Pipiena’s house had half of the roof and one side of the kitchen wall blown off. Her plantation wasn't really affected because her husband managed to prepare it for the cyclone by cutting down the tapioca leaves.

She is confidently working hard in her business to continue earning money for her family and also to reach her vision to buy them a piece of land and also build them a house.
