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

A loan helped to purchase food and packaging items and to pay for business registration.

Vilimaima's story

Vilimaima (54) spent most of her working days in hotels as she lived in the tourism capital of Fiji. Over the years, she developed a passion for the Food and Beverages department, so when she retired she hoped to start her own business doing something similar.

Not wanting to bother her grown children, she took it upon herself to look for financial assistance so that she could start her own business and was ecstatic when she discovered that there are generous people from other parts of the world that assist her with her business endeavors.

She humbly seeks a loan to start her business where she would prepare food packs and sell them early in the mornings in the bus station, in time for the buses that hotel workers catch.

Having worked in the hotel industry for over 30 years, she knows that the demand is present and she is looking forward to starting her business right away so she can earn money for herself and her husband and see her former colleagues again.

She will use the money to purchase the food and packaging items and also pay for the registration of her business.
