A loan helped to purchase a weighing scale, packaging supplies, storage containers, and a few chasers.


Paulini's story

In Fiji, both men and women enjoy kava, a relaxing drink made from the root of the kava pepper plant. It is especially popular at social gatherings.

Paulini's family survives mainly from this trade. Her husband is a kava farmer, but lacks proper marketing for this crop. Sometimes his kava are underpriced and they tend to loose out a lot. Paulini is seeking a loan to purchase a weighing scale, packaging supplies, storage containers, and a few chasers as well. This will allow her to package her kava powder well and sell it at the right price.

The money she makes from this service will go towards her children’s education and help with the family’s everyday needs.
