Raijieli's story

Street food has become a modern phenomenon and there are even YouTubers who travel to different countries to sample them and give their personal reviews. From the teas served with buffalo milk along the streets of Turkey to the local roti wraps and fruit juice stalls found in Fiji’s towns and cities, these adventurers have also stamped their mark in being a creative way to flaunt the cosmopolitan diet of Fijians.

Since these street foods are affordable, accessible, and approachable to common people, while being unique and ingenious, their added benefit is that locals and foreigners of a variety of nationalities and races can try them easily without reluctance. Besides its original function, street foods are expanding to function as a tourism destination that reflects the characteristics of a specific region or country.

Raijieli hopes to start her own business of selling food packs, so she needs a loan to buy ingredients, cooking utensils, equipment, a table, and takeaway and storage containers. She plans to buy a commercial oven, pots, and food warmers, as she is self-confident that her products will sell like hotcakes and even set her on a path of becoming a household name as a caterer.

This mother of four hopes that the lenders will make her dreams a reality, as it has been proven that women invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities. This ripple effect will benefit everyone in her circle of friends and family.
