Vasiti's story

Vasiti is a grandmother of 2 who adores spending time with her family. After losing her husband to a heart attack, and as a diabetes patient herself, she made a change for the better.

It was at that time that Vasati started her business selling fruits and vegetables from her roadside stall. In her own little way, she hopes to make a difference within her family and in her village as she provides a service that will have positive effects on them financially and also for their well-being.

Presently, as a woman entrepreneur, Vasiti is not immune to the struggles felt worldwide because of the Covid-19 epidemic, and nor to the effects of the natural disasters brought about by Super Tropical Cyclone Yasa (Category 5).

To counter this, Vasiti hopes to expand her business by acquiring a loan that will allow her to buy a wider variety of fruits and vegetables from her suppliers.

She is confident that she will be able to run a profitable business that will be a beacon of hope to fellow women entrepreneurs who will not fear taking risks.
