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

A loan helped to buy essential items for her grocery store like milk, flour, eggs, sugar, oil, & soft drinks as well.

Lei's story

Lei has been the owner of a canteen business in Viseisei for a few years now and has enjoyed every challenge and triumph she has faced. Due to the number of canteen businesses within her village, she has only been able to break even with her sales. After months of observations and scoping, Lei has decided to apply for a loan to assist with upgrading her canteen.

She has decided to increase her essential items and add new goods like soft drinks for her customers to ensure her business will attain the top stop. Lei is excited to introduce her newly-stocked canteen and is certain of the popularity and profits it will gain within her village and neighboring communities as well.
