A loan of $850 helped buy more supplies for her foodstall at school.

Soonalofa's story

Most of the school children at Maagiagi village cannot afford to buy breakfast or lunch from their school canteen as it is more expensive for poor kids. Soonalofa is just the solution for them.

She sells popcorn and Samoan cookies five days a week. This is a good alternative and the cheapest one for the poorer students at school. Soonaalofa has also been able to continue to collect good income from selling cookies and popcorn at school. She uses the profit from her business to support her three children's education and to support her family financially.

"At least I can earn something to help out with my children, but I have a personal goal to turn out this small business into a successful big one," said Soonaalofa.
