Fatu's story

Fatu, 32, is a single mother. She lives at Kakata with her three children, who are between the ages of 3 and 18, and are in school. She stopped her own education in the sixth grade.

Fatu has a table adjacent to the super market where she has been selling bananas, oranges, plums, and pineapples for the past five years. She started in this business with a small amount that she received from a friend; now, with the profits it generates, she buys more goods to sell and attends to the needs of her children. Fatu is requesting a loan to purchase more bananas, oranges, and plums for the business. Her plan for the future is to continue to educate her children.
