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

A loan helped to start a home-based kava business.

Matelita's story

Matelita wants to earn more to help her send her 3 children to school. She has decided to go into the business of selling kava – a drink enjoyed socially by many Fijians and Pacific Islanders. When their own store of kava runs out, villagers must travel to other centers to buy this traditional potion. A loan will help Matelita buy more raw materials and establish herself as a reliable supplier of kava powder. Thus, any extra income earned will be contributed to expanding her business.
