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

A loan helped to increase her supply of kava powder.

Lusiana's story

Lusiana wants to earn more so that she can provide the best for her two children. She has supplied her people with kava over the past 12 months, which has enabled her to generate a reliable income.

As such, she wishes to continue with her kava business but seeks a loan to increase her supply. When she runs out of kava, the villagers must travel to other centers to buy this traditional potion. A loan will help Lusiana buy more raw materials and establish herself as a reliable supplier of kava powder.
