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

A loan helped to repair the damages caused by the cyclone to the restaurant.

Lataemeione's story

Lataemeione is 66 years old, widowed, and has seven adult children. She lives with one of her sons and his family. Together they operate a restaurant, where they serve people with different menus. Their restaurant is open every day except Sundays. Currently they employ three people and her son and his wife also work at the restaurant.

In April, a strong cyclone struck Tonga, causing damage to many homes and businesses, including Lataemeione's restaurant. A tree branch hit the sliding door, which broke, causing water to flow in and soaking most of the furniture and table clothes.

Lataemeione requested a loan from SPBD, which she will use to repair the damage in her restaurant.
