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

A loan helped to start her kava business.

Jiokapeci's story

In Fiji, kava is a profitable business, as both men and women enjoy a good bowl of kava after work. With the help of a loan, Jiokapeci, 38, plans to start her own business pounding the root of the pepper plant into powder, the base of the drink. The loan will help Jiokapeci ensure she has enough materials to make the powder and supply kava to meet local demand.
