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

A loan helped to buy 10 kilos of dried kava and packaging materials.

Teresia's story

Teresia (38) has seized the opportunity to earn income by selling the traditional drink, kava, in Naseivou village. With the rule imposed that alcohol beverages such as beer, wine and other strong drinks are not acceptable in the community, she is self-assured that eventually the villagers will just opt for kava.

Seeing it as a great advantage, Teresia wants a loan to help her to make this business dream into a reality.

Henceforth, it will have a great impact in improving the lives of her eight children with further education and also will enhance her way of living.
