Timaima's story

Timaima (55) is the friendly face of a canteen business in her village of Navatuvula. For two years, she has catered to the needs of her customers, providing basic food items, household necessities and more.

Unfortunately, Timaima's equipment and tools have been worn out over the years and she is in need of a loan to replace them.

With the loaned money, she is looking to purchase a freezer and new shelves. In addition to this, she will increase her supply of canteen goods to meet the high demand of her people. She looks forward to providing her friendly services again with new equipment and fresh stock.
