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

A loan helped to buy a stove, pots, frying pan, flour, sugar and some other materials that she used to cook foods in the canteen.

Mele's story

Mele is a mother of two children who have both not yet entered school. She's married and her husband joined in a group of fruit picking for NZ.

While her husband is away, Mele is the only one responsible for looking after their children. She's running her canteen selling fast food that she made for the first time. She's running her business at her own home. She makes sandwiches, bakes pies and also makes drinks.

She's working hard in her business and has used her earnings to pay back her loan and also to help her family living especially for her two children.

In the future she has a vision to save money from her income to buy them a new piece of land to build a new house and also to educate her children for a better future.
