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

A loan helped to buy some timber and also new iron for their house's roof.

'Ema'ili's story

'Ema'ili is 24 years old and a single mother to her one child. Her business that she's running is making tapa. This is the only way that she survives with her child. She makes her tapa and sells them to earn money to help them and also to pay back her loan.

Last February, Tonga was struck by a very strong cyclone named Gita. 'Ema'ili's house was badly affected and all the roof was blown off. She applied for a rehabilitation loan and used that money to buy timber and new iron roof for their house. She still continues running her business to achieve her vision for the future to be able to educate her son and be able to take good care of him for she's a single mother.
