Mereani's story

Mereani is currently the sole provider in her family after her husband left her and her five children.

With no source of income, she used to work at a corner store near her home but she found that the income she earned was barely enough to meet all their financial needs.

She hopes to get a loan so that she can open her own kava business which she can run from home while also keeping her work as a shop attendant at the corner store. She believes that her kava business will thrive in a kava consuming community as hers. And she is willing to work harder to increase her family income so that all their needs are met.

Kava is a drink that is made by pounding dried pepper plants and mixing them with water. With the money, Mereani hopes to purchase dried bales of kava, a pounder, a scale and packaging materials.
