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

A loan helped to setup a kava business.

Salanieta's story

The chance of a better future begins with a good education. Salanieta knows how important this is and wants her 3 children to have that opportunity.

To help pay for it, Salanieta (52) has asked for a loan to start her own business selling kava powder.

Kava is a popular drink in her community and she is confident her venture will succeed.

With the cash from her sales, Salanieta will be able to meet her daily living expenses and school fees.
