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

A loan helped to buy barrels of kerosene and also purchase stacks of firewood.

Mina's story

43 year old Mina of Fatima village has seen her business grow from a small canteen to a fully decked out grocery store, now catering for a community of around 300 households. She owes all this to the loan she took out a while ago which helped propelled her business to what it is today.

With that being said, she is now exploring other avenues and ideas which she could add onto her business. One of which is kerosene and firewood. Kerosene, since most of the villagers around her community use kerosene stoves and lamps on a daily basis and most consider this to be a basic necessity. Firewood simply for storage purposes during the occasional rainy days.

She needs financial assistance of at least FJD 7,000 to buy barrels of kerosene and stacks of firewood from wholesalers. This should solidify her business as the main hub for customers' every need. Her business can only get better from here.
