Moemauu is 37 years of age and married with four children. She owns and operates a business venture, selling general hand-woven products to tourists and local community members. She has two years of experience in this business.

Moemauu needs a loan of 1,500 WST to purchase raw materials to make woven products. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 250 talas or $104 per week) to improve the business.

In 2010, Moemauu joined SPBD to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks because they lack collateral. This is Moemauu 's 2nd loan with SPBD.
