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

A loan helped to pay for home repairs and labor and also to purchase more fuel from the mainland.

Teiraniwau's story

Teiraniwau sells firewood and fuel such as kerosene, diesel and premix to the villagers of Tabewa village and other nearby villages on Rabi Island in Fiji. Due to the recent tropical cyclone Yasa, which affected the Fiji group in December of 2020, Teiraniwau's house was damaged, but the demand for her business increased due to the frequent use of generators for electricity and the numerous fiber boats that run on outboard motors that have been bringing assistance to the villages on the island. She requires your financial assistance so that she can firstly, purchase building materials for her home and pay carpenters to carry out repairs so that her family can live safely and comfortably inside. She will then a utilize portion of the loan to purchase more drums of fuel from the mainland for which she will need to pay more for and for its transportation to her. The profits from that will be used to pay for remaining repairs in her home and she also wishes to put money aside to help her siblings pay for repairs at their parents' house which is located a few villages away. Your loan will not only help Teiraniwau, it will also help her parents and her community as they will have access to electricity and other services because of the availability of fuel.
