A loan helped to sell frozen food/meats such as chicken soup packs, chicken feet, sausages, fish heads and chicken liver, which are a common addition to the diet.


Sereima's story

Sereima runs her business from the comfort of her home in Waqadra village. The food packs she sells like hot fish and cassava, rourou in mutton, cakes, and the nature of her business has given her the flexibility to support and finance her family's cost of living.

However, the twin effects of the Fiji economic recession (20% negative growth) and the disastrous impact of COVID-19 , has become a cause of concern for the women micro-entrepreneurs of Fiji and Sereima is no exception.

She has therefore expanded her home-based business to include the sale of frozen foods. Sereima is hoping to sell meats such as chicken soup packs, chicken feet, sausages, fish heads and chicken liver, meats which are a common addition to the dietary patterns of locals.

A loan for Sereima will definitely help her through these hard times and will also be a small step towards reviving the Fijian economy.


This loan is special because:

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