'Ilisapesi's story

'Ilisapesi is a 29-year-old mother of five and the wife of a farmer. She lives with her family in their own home. Four of her children attend school while the youngest is still little and lives at home.

'Ilisapesi runs a plantation business with her husband. They grow different kinds of Tongan food such as taro, yams, and sweet potatoes. Her husband takes care of their plantation and, when they harvest their crops, 'Ilisapesi helps with marketing. She takes the crops to the local market to sell. This is their daily routine during harvest time.

In the upcoming months, 'Ilisapesi is planning to send their harvested crops overseas. She wants this loan to help with the export process and fees. 'Ilisapesi's vision is to buy another truck to helps them with their business.
