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

A loan helped to buy bundles of fresh fish to sell.

Taraivini's story

In the last 12 months of sheer hard work, Taraivini has been able to bring up her family through her small earnings from her kava business. She sells both the root and powder of kava (a social drink). With a heart that is willing to reach greater heights, the lady from Naisausau wishes to diversify into fishing and then selling them.

Her husband is a fisherman and this would help Taraivini as she will just buy from him and sell them in the village and the local market. With the high demand of seafood, Taraivini wishes to meet the demands of locals, as this would in return boost her family living standards and give her children an education they might otherwise be unable to afford.
