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

A loan helped to start a canteen business selling only the fastest selling food items in her village.

Bekura's story

Bekura (34) needs to support her family as they do not have a steady income. She has requested a loan to start a grocery shop or canteen. These neighbourhood shops, usually operated from the home, are common in Fiji. Bekura needs a loan to buy bulk quantities of daily essentials to stock its shelves. She will use her canteen’s takings to provide a more stable income for her family.
