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

A loan helped to buy construction items for home repair and to purchase stocks of fruits and vegetables from suppliers.

Baladina's story

Baladina has been operating a fruits and vegetables business for years, which she operates from the local municipal market. With her earnings, she has sent her 4 children to school and provided them with a comfortable life.

However, in December 2020, as the national economy attempted to recover from a recession, the nation was hit by tropical cyclone Yasa, which disrupted Baladina’s business.

Now she seeks a loan to repair her home with the purchase of construction items and also to continue her business by buying stocks of fruits and vegetables from her suppliers. Baladina is confident in her plans and understands that the struggle she is in today is developing the strength she needs for tomorrow.
