Lepeka's story

Lepeka is a 59-year-old single lady, from the island of Vava'u. She lives with her sister, at her home.

She is running a business of catering and growing kava. With her catering, she can cater for any occasion such as funerals, weddings and birthdays. Currently, five people are hired to help with the catering. For the kava plantation, she and her sister, own their father's piece of land, and they are using it to grow kava. They hire men to take care of their kava plantation. The kava is exported overseas and also shipped to mainland Tonga. Both of her businesses are running very actively, and her loans are always paid in advance and on time.
She is applying for another loan, to hire more workers for the catering, for her catering business is very famous, and also plough their piece of land for growing more kava.
