Faasega is a 21-year-old woman, married with zero kids. She is very talented in making elei and printing materials, which she learned through courses in school.

Even without a regular job, she is very hopeful. Her first loan of $300 USD from SPBD was used to buy all the tools needed to start her business. Her business has been going well thus far, and she hopes that her next loans can be used to improve and expand it. She really appreciates the help she has received from SPBD through its loans, because without them, her business would not have been possible.
