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

A loan helped to buy fruits and vegetables in bulk and also to build shelters in remote villages to sell produce.

Kesaia's story

62-year-old Kesaia is one of the oldest and longest-serving vendors in the Korovou market. Her customers know her exceptionally well and her business has grown to be one of the most successful in the area. Her success has led to her want of opening up other market stalls in a village between her town and the next as she understands the cost of traveling and the amount of time it takes the people to get to the next town.

She humbly requests a loan so that she will be able to buy more fruits and vegetables and build a few shelters in a few villages that are quite remote so that she may sell fruits and vegetables and also cater for the village women who would also want to sell their other products such as brooms and homemade jams as they usually do.

Over the years she has greatly involved herself in charity work, giving her produce to families affected by tropical cyclones, giving whatever amount of money she can to church fundraisings and families in need.

She is willing to work harder as she believes that her work is useful to her family and many other people and she knows that she can still offer more to the community if given the chance to.
