Tofaga
Tofaga is 35 years old, married, and has seven children. Tofaga sells baked goods in the local community. She has three years of experience in this business. Tofaga needs a loan of 1,500 WST to purchase raw ingredients needed to make products for sale. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 400 WST) to improve/expand her business.

In 2010, Tofaga 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 Tofaga's second loan with SPBD.
