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

A loan helped to buy more groceries for her baking business.

'evaloni's story

'Evaloni is 34 years old and from the eastern side of Tongatapu. She is a single mother of four, and they live in their own home.

Her business is baking, where she bakes cakes, pies, cupcakes and other baking food, then delivers it to most Chinese retail stores in their village and sells it there. Some of her baking is also sold out of her home.

She is running her business on her own. Her business runs every day.

Being a single mother and being the only one providing for the kids is very difficult, but 'Evaloni knows her kids are her responsibility. She has to make a living for them and be able to satisfy their needs and wants.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy more groceries for her business. Her vision is to provide a better life for her kids by educating them to get a better job in the future.

This all depends on her and her business. That is why she is willing to keep her business running at all times.
