but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to add more fruits and vegetables to her stall.

Temalesi's story

Temalesi grew up during a time when getting an education was expensive. There was no bus fare assistance for students, so if there was no money, Temalesi would have to miss out on travelling to school.

Those experiences, however, made an independent and strong-willed woman out of her. She chose not to give up on her dreams and unlike most of her peers, Temalesi is still single and is financially stable. She still dreams of completing her education and has enrolled for night classes in a school program that was designed for those who wished to complete their secondary school education.

For a few years, she has been a familiar face at the local market where she sells vegetables and fruits. Her customers love her service because she is very understanding and flexible.

However, Temalesi hopes she can offer a wider variety of vegetables to her customers and a loan can assist her do that. She has established good relations with the farmers, so she is self-assured that she will get a good bargain on the vegetables and fruits that she intends to sell at a profit.
