A loan helped to buy building materials and ingredients, equipment and utensils for a food parcel business.

Delle's story

A picture may say a thousand words, but it could not fully comprehend the emotions that are associated with the devastation a natural disaster causes. Apart from damaging infrastructure and disrupting the day-to-day routine of its victims, it also changes the natural environment and the livelihood of people.

Delle had come to terms with reality when the cyclone passed leaving her temporarily homeless since December 2020. Her extended family has had to share the little that they could gather throughout their stay at the evacuation center.

The grandmother of 3 is sincerely requesting a loan to purchase building materials so that repairs to their home can begin as soon as possible. Delle’s grandchildren will benefit from this as they need some sort of normalcy and stability in their academic journey.

Delle also hopes to continue her business selling food parcels. She will need to buy the cooking stove, cooking utensils, ingredients and packaging materials.

The grandmother knows that her business will be profitable as the school year has begun and she would also attract a new customer base as the disaster responders have been heavily involved in repair work in her community.

This loan is special because:

It provides emergency funding to clients affected by tropical cyclone Yasa.
