Mele Faapoi

Tonga

Mele (54) is a widow with three children and four grandchildren. She contributes to her family’s income by weaving traditional mats.

Lend

Lavinia Tongia

Tonga

For the past few years, Lavinia (44) has been running a prepared meals canteen to support her five children. Her husband works hard as a laborer but his earnings are barely enough to support the basic needs of his large family. Lavinia seeks a loan to buy more ingredients and containers, and expand her output of home-cooked dishes and snacks. She will prepare more of these ready-to-eat meals at home, and deliver them to a local food stall. With the expanded output, Lavinia is confident she will be able to earn enough to cover her children’s school costs.

Lend

Nelly Oliverio

Philippines

Nelly helps her husband support their family by running a variety store in their village. As family funds have been tight, she has had to use some of the store’s takings to pay household expenses. Now her inventory is running low and she cannot afford to restock. Nelly (41) needs a loan to refill her shelves and replenish stocks. As sales recover, she will use the profit to sustain her children’s education and ensure a bright future for them.

Lend

Jiesel Tabiano

Philippines

One sack of rice might be enough to restore the retail trade of Jiesel (32). She needs a loan because her family’s current income is barely enough to cover the cost of basic commodities and education. Jiesel will use it to buy the rice in bulk, repack it into smaller amounts and sell to locals. If she can restart her retail trade, Jiesel is confident she can earn enough to make a real difference to her family’s wellbeing.

Lend

Phus NOV

Cambodia

Phus is a barber and his wife a garment factory worker. Together they earn $10 a day to support their two children. Over the past months, Phus (41) has managed to put aside a small amount of savings, with which he plans to repair and renovate their home. He will use this loan to buy extra materials, such as zinc roof sheeting, to start the improvements. Phus knows a more comfortable home will improve the living standards of all her family. His goal is to expand his business and buy a new motorbike.

Lend

Nob LIM

Cambodia

As another season comes round, many subsistence farmers lack savings to buy inputs for their next planting. Nob’s husband is a farmer who cultivates rice and cassava on their small plot. She has applied for a loan to invest in fertiliser and hire workers to help harvest it. The yield from their efforts will help meet the needs of her five children, at least until the next cropping season. Nob hopes the coming harvest will be good and will protect her family’s standard of life.
