Fetuao
Fetuao S. is 41 and married with seven children. She owns a business baking bread, scones and buns. Fetuao has three years of experience in this business. Fetuao needs a loan of WST$1300 to purchase additional cooking ingredients. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 100 talas or US $42 per week) to pay for her children's tuition fees.

In 2008, Fetuao joined SPBD. This is her third loan with SPBD. SPBD's loans are Fetuao's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
