A loan helped to buy an overlock sewing machine, fabrics, sewing kits, a maintenance kit, and an ironing board.


Mere's story

Mere survived the unpleasant experience of Cyclone Winston, so enduring the COVID-19 pandemic feels like nothing to her.

She has been supporting her family by utilizing her skills as a seamstress. Mere believes that adding better finishes to the clothes she produces will improve their quality, which allows her to charge slightly higher prices. She has applied for a loan to buy an overlock sewing machine, fabrics, sewing kits, a maintenance kit, and an ironing board.

Mere is confident that she can boost the quality and quantity of her finished garments. With the extra money she earns from her business, she hopes to become self-sufficient.


This loan is special because:

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