Malia Koleti's story

Malia Koleti is 56 years old with 8 children. She operates a business of selling banana and taro in her community to earn a living. She has been doing this for more than 2 years.

She works really hard to shift her plantation to another level. Malia Koleti needs a loan to buy a banana tube, taro roots, a wheelbarrow, a water tank, hand gloves, a rake, a shovel, chemicals, a spade, a hoe, and fertilizer to assist her to run the business.
