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

A loan helped to replenish her canteen stock of tin foods, washing powder, rice, sugar, milk, butter, eggs, sweets, biscuits, toiletries, spices, and oil.

Makereta's story

Makereta operates a small canteen that has just begun. With her meager capital, she has ensured that she sells basic items that are needed such as washing detergent and canned foods. Her village is situated on an island that is so remote that travelling to the nearest shop involves going on a 30-minute boat ride by sea and taking a 30-minute drive.

Unfortunately, her canteen quickly runs out of stock because she was only able to get a few items for her opening stock. She hopes to be able to secure a loan that will enable her to buy her stock in bulk. This will be economical, as then she won’t need to travel as many times to the main town to replenish her stocks.
