A loan helped to add an extra bale of kava to her stock.

Mereia's story

Mereia runs a kava business from her home village of Nukutubu. With lots of of buyers, she was able to earn extra income to support her family financially. Kava is a calming drink that is enjoyed by many islanders during a traditional function or after a hard day's work.

Having lived in the village since childhood, she sees this as a successful business that will help her family financially. She is very familiar with the kind of products that her customers look for.

She seeks to take out a loan to help her buy kava supplies so that she does not run out of stock. This Nukutubu native is confident that her business will bring a good yield to her family and her business despite the current situation facing the country.

This loan is special because:

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