Taimoe
Taimoe is 42 years old and is married with eight children. Taimoe owns and operates a business venture, planting and harvesting taro for sale. She has four years of experience in this business. Taimoe needs a loan of 1800 WST to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxone. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 400 talas or $167 per week) to pay for her children's tuition fees.

In 2009, Taimoe 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 Taimoe's third loan with SPBD.
