Vika's story

This 78-year-old widow's name is Vika. Vika lives together with her youngest daughter and her family. There are nine adults and twenty-two grandchildren.

Currently she still manages to run her own business, where she sell out clothes from her own tent. Her main flea day is Saturday. It has been three years since she started her business, and she is still independent and makes her own money. When she is almost out of goods to sell, she travels and buys more to sell.

In April this year, Tonga was struck by a cyclone named Harold, causing much damages to many homes including Vika's house. Part of Vika's roof was blown off. Now Vika wishes to apply for a loan to buy supplies to repair and rebuild her roof.
