Soloa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to plough their farm and hire more people to help with harvesting.
Soloa is 53 and the mother of nine children. Her husband works as a farmer and they live with their four youngest children in a home they own. Soloa and her husband run several business, but the main business to be funded by this loan is their farm, where they grow taro, kumara, cassava, and yam. Their yam crop is about ready to harvest and she has applied for a loan to hire people to help her husband do that as well as plough their land. In the photo behind her we see their little house full of yams, which they are planning on exporting overseas.
