A loan helped to buy root crops such as cassava/dalo and also a storage cooler.


Mere's story

41-year-old Mere is an avid business woman currently running a business that sells vegetables at the local market. She earns just enough to keep her family going for a period or so. Now, due to the increase in business demands from her customers, she wishes to apply for a loan of 2,650FJD to purchase other root crops such as cassava and dalo along with a cooler to keep her produce fresh and avoid insects from getting to them.

She is doing this because she wants her business to be in a better position to support itself and thereby be able to better provide for her family.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
