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

A loan helped to purchase grocery items, such as milk, eggs, sugar, biscuits, tinned fish, oil, and flour, for sale in her shop.

Lusiana's story

Lusiana resides in Nabukebuke, one of the small outer islands in Fiji. She runs a canteen in her neighborhood. Biscuits, noodles, tin meat/tuna, eggs, cleaning agents, toiletries, household supplies, and more can be found in her canteen.

People in her neighborhood are now depending on her canteen to purchase their necessary basic needs due to the current COVID-19 outbreak restriction on the movement of people. As a result, her stock is no longer sufficient to meet the demands of her villagers.

She intended to use this loan to expand her canteen shop and purchase more products for her business.
