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

A loan helped to buy raw materials for her handicrafts business.

Soana's story

This is Soana. She is 43 years old and married with six children. Soana runs a craft business where she makes kiekie, taovala for males and waist strings, using raw materials such as hibiscus and coconut materials. Soana has run this business for more than ten years, and her family benefits from her business.

With her business earnings, she is able to help her husband in providing for their children and also for paying for their school fees. Soana applied for a loan to buy raw materials for her business, for the only thing that slows her business down is not having enough raw materials.
