Ma'ata's story

Meet Ma'ata. She is 34 years old, married and has four kids who are all attending primary school.

Ma'ata runs a canteen business where she makes burgers and sandwiches and sells them along with soft drinks at the primary school her children attend. Her canteen runs every school day and during holidays. She also delivers her canteen food to retail stores in their village. She has been running this business for three years now, and it has been a great contribution to their family's living.

While their canteen runs very well, she also plans on running a takeaway stall along the main road, so she applied for a loan to help with the building of the takeaway stall. She will also hire someone to take care of her canteen while she spends some times in the takeaway until it is stable.
