Torika's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to replace her kiln and buy raw materials for her products.

Torika's story

Coconut byproducts are vital to the economy of Fijian people. Copra, the source of coconut virgin oil, is an important export. Torika, 63, with the help of her family members, produces copra.

She makes hair shampoo, body lotion and bathing soap out of the dried coconuts. Her kiln for drying out the coconut flesh needs repair. A loan will pay for it to be fixed, as well as buy more raw materials and boost production.

She is certain she can earn enough to save for their welfare, as well as make her loan repayments.
