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

A loan helped purchase initial stock of canned food, fruit and toiletries for a canteen.

Tavaita's story

Tavaita has been through a lot of difficulties in life. She is a survivor of breast cancer and, having been through such an ordeal, it has changed her outlook on life. Tavaita sees that taking well calculated risks in life can be rewarding.

With this in mind, the Kiuva native has started a canteen business in her village. Unlike most businesses of such nature, she hopes to promote healthy living through her products.

She needs a loan to purchase her opening stock that will include fruit, canned food, and toiletries. She has also decided that she will not sell candy, soda drinks, cigarettes, and Kava or alcohol in her efforts to make her community a healthier one.

She is confident that her business idea will not only be a profitable one to help her and her family, but will also create awareness on healthy living within her community.
