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

A loan helped to buy 4 kilograms of kava, packaging bags, a measuring scoop, chasers and a storage container.

Matauea's story

Matauea wants to earn more so that she can send her children to school. She has decided to go into the business of selling kava – a drink enjoyed socially by all peoples of Nuku. When their own store of kava runs out, villagers must travel to other centres to buy this traditional potion.

A loan will help Matauea buy more raw materials and establish herself as a reliable supplier of kava powder.
