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

A loan helped to purchase a mini electronic scale, brown bags for packing and initial stocks of pounded Kava.

Salote's story

One of the primary reasons for the increased popularity of Kava inside and outside of the Pacific Islands is because of the overall relaxing effects it has on the body. For this reason, among others, we celebrate it as a social drink.

Salote has noticed this to be true for the residents in and near Nakorokula. She needs a loan to take advantage of this demand and enable her to be a reliable supplier of Kava. Salote plans to buy a mini electronic scale, brown bags for packing and all the opening stocks of pounded Kava she will need to kick start her business.

She is hoping that becoming a businesswoman will also help her family financially and inspire her daughters to see that there are more avenues to make money besides being formally employed.
