A loan helped to buy more stock for her store.

Tivinia's story

Tivinia is 45 years old and lives in the eastern area of Tongatapu. She is married with one child.

Her business is a retail store and only her husband helps out with the business. The store is located in their front yard. In their store, they sell different products, from household goods to meat, canned food and other goods.

The store opens every day except for Sunday. Her business is running very actively.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy more stock for her store. Her vision for the future is to expand her store into a wholesale store.
