Leah's story

For 24 months, Leah (27) has dedicated her time to running her canteen shop from her home in Narokorokoyawa. She needs to earn more income as her children are approaching school, and Leah hopes to secure a loan to support her goal.

Leah is asking for a loan to help her expand her canteen inventory and also add kava to her products. She plans to use the loan to buy fresh stocks of canteen items, a scale, packaging bags, storage containers, and shelving units. Leah is optimistic that increasing her inventory will increase the profits she can earn.
