A loan helped to buy roofing irons, timber, paint, tables and chairs for her planned kava bar.


Kateia's story

A successful Kiva borrower, Kateia had taken an earlier loan to start up her kava business. Despite the series of disruption of natural disasters affecting the kava plants, she continued selling kava.

Kateia now wants to open a kava bar, an ideal business. The bar will consist of an open space with tables and provide a comfortable setting for customers to relax and leisurely enjoy their drinks.

Kateia is seeking another loan to achieve this goal. She is optimistic that this business will flourish if all goes well.


This loan is special because:

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