Sisi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy her canteen items in bulk such as food/household items with a freezer.

Sisi's story

The 63-year-old Sisi of Sila is a keen individual known for her strong will, determination, and uncompromising faith in her line of work. In this case, she has been a canteen operator for a year now. She sells basic food items from packets of noodles to packets of candles.

Over the last few months, her stocks continue to run short due to an increase in demand from her people. This is mainly due to the fact that her canteen is the only one in operation within her community and one would have to travel quite a distance to get to the next one.

She is requesting for a loan of 3000 FJD to buy more stocks for her canteen and also purchase a small freezer to keep her frozen food and drinks cold. She hopes that with these investments, it would further cement her business as being a one stop shop for her community and surrounding areas. It should also give her the capability to be a financial backbone for family.
