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

A loan helped to buy roofing irons, timber, paint, plywood, and cement boards and to revive her kava business.

Maopa's story

Having her home flattened by the strong winds from tropical cyclone Yasa, Maopa is self-assured as she sums up her life in three words that "Life Goes On".

Desperate for help, she is seeking a loan to build a home that is convenient to shelter her family. The money needed will aid in buying roofing irons, iron rods, cement boards, and plywood. Maopa also has plans to do business as soon as she settles down.

Self-assured that indeed life goes on, Maopa does not wish to cry over spilt milk. She just wants to concentrate on building a home to shelter away from all sorts of storms.
