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

A loan helped to purchase bales of kava, gross of cigarettes, and chasers.

Seini's story

In Fiji, both men and women enjoy kava, a relaxing drink made from the root of the kava pepper plant. It is especially popular at social gatherings. Seini wants to improve her kava sales that started 3 months ago. She plans to purchase bales of kava, a gross of cigarettes and supplies of chasers. The money she makes from this service will help with family's everyday needs.
