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

A loan helped to buy groceries for her canteen business.

Hepisipa's story

Hepisipa runs a canteen business, where she prepares burgers and sandwiches with some drinks and sells them at the village's primary school. She has six children. Some of them are still in school, while some have finished school and are pursuing their careers. She and her husband, with their remaining four children who are in school, live in their own home in the town area. Her husband works as a farmer on their own plantation, and provides crops for the family's daily meal. During holidays, Hepisipa still prepares her canteen and sells some from their front yard and also some at the local retail stores in their village.

A loan will help Hepisipa purchase enough groceries for the long run of her canteen, because school has started already and she needs to make enough to feed the children and satisfy their needs.
