Ulaula
Ulaula G. is 36 and married with four children (ages 2 - 8). She owns a business venture planting & harvesting taro for sale. Ulaula has three years of experience in this business. Ulaula needs a loan of WST $2,900 to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 450 talas or US $188 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2007, Ulaula joined SPBD. This is her fourth loan with SPBD. SPBD's loans are Ulaula's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
