Sarafina Kangalu's story

Sarafina Kangalu is 26 years of age, is married, and her husband works for a construction company. They do not have any children and are living in their shanty home, which is located just a 10 minute drive to Port Vila's international airport.

Sarafina Kangalu's community is quite large, and the main industry is fishing and agriculture. As Vanuatu is going through its cyclone season, it has been hard at times to earn a steady income.

Sarafina Kangalu has asked for a loan so she can purchase raw materials and ingredients which she will use to produce delicious meals for her valuable customers. Ever since she moved to the city in 2016, she has been cooking and selling to earn income from. She desires to have her own land to build her family their dream home, so with what she gets from her earnings, she will save up to achieve that goal. She wants to be able to provide the best living for her family when she has her own children in the near future.
