Fanefa's story

Fanefa is a 52-year-old married woman who has 12 children and three children. Of her children, only one child is still attending school.

Her business is lawn mowing. She received a loan from SPBD and used it to buy a new lawn mower and also to fill the machine with petrol.

She does not employ anyone in her business. and only has her family to help her. They cut grass using the lawn mower.

She faces challenges from her business. She said there is high demand for her services, but she is not able to satisfy all her customers' demands. So, it will be better if she hires or employs someone to help with her lawn mower services.

Last February, a very strong cyclone visit Tonga and damaged Fanefa's lawn mower. At the moment, her business is already running well, in order to earn some income, pay back her loan, and help her family's living. In the future, she's dreaming of renovating her house and also educating her children.
