Fatu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase beer, pure water and different kinds of assorted drinks to sell.
Fatu is from Waterloo and is in her late thirties. She is married with two children, aged 15 and 20 years old. Her husband is a carpenter with three wives; every wife cares for herself. Fatu started operating a drinks business to create income to support her children and find another husband who will take care of her. Fatu runs a little bar at home where she sells beer, pure water and different kinds of assorted drinks. She has been running the business for ten years. She works at the business every day from 10:30 am to 1:00am. Her business is the only source of income she has. She says her main challenges to her business are electricity problems to cool the drinks and transporting the goods from town to her house. Fatu has requested a loan in order to purchase beer, pure water and different kinds of assorted drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and improve her status. In the future, she plans to open a big bar and restaurant. She appreciates your support.
