Ro Vakacegai's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy farming tools, pesticides, and manure for her kava farm.
Ro Vakacegai's story
Kava is widely planted and consumed in Fiji and provides village women with a source of income. Although Ro Vakacegai’s husband has a stable income, it is not enough to support the whole family. With the availability of land, she sees an opportunity selling kava root and powder. This will help combat her struggles in bringing up her 7 children. She seeks a loan to get her venture into the local market. With the extra cash from this kava business, Ro Vakacegai will be able to meet her living expenses and her children’s school fees.
