Taupaolo
Taupaolo T., 32 and married with three children ranging in age from one to eight, owns a business planting and harvesting taro for sale. With two years of experience in this business, Taupaolo now needs a loan of 1000 talas to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 300 talas or US $125 per week) to improve/expand her enterprise.



In 2010, Taupaolo joined SPBD, and this is her first loan. SPBD's loans are Taupaolo's only access to capital because she has never been able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
