A loan of $1,425 helps to buy building materials to rebuild her home and also purchase canteen stock.


Salanieta's story

Blessed to have no lives claimed under the barbaric strong winds and the endless heavy downpour of rain, Salanieta said she is still grateful to see another day with her children and husband.

Currently living in the evacuation center and depending on government aid to feed and clothe the family, she is desperate for a breakthrough.

Hence Salanieta kindly requests a loan to renovate their home. The money will be used to purchase the building materials and start off the project.

Assured to see that this home is well built, the family will be selling hot meals to government workers and earn a decent income.


This loan is special because:

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