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

A loan helped to buy bags of rice, flour, sugar, cartons of biscuits, noodles, canned food stuffs, dairy products, toiletries, washing/cleaning items, etc.

Faranisese's story

A retired civil worker, who does not want to be left idle at home, is seeking a loan to run a mini canteen business. Faranisese, 69, is an industrious woman who does not want age to define her abilities.

These small canteens are common in Fiji and are operated from the comfort of homes. Faranisese wishes to start her small shop to sell only the most demanded and fast-selling food and household items. She is confident about her decision and looks forward to a successful business journey.
