Pule
Pule is 32 years old, married, and has one child. She has a big plantation where she grows taro, taamu (a large root vegetable), yams, and bananas, which she sells in her community and at the market. She has been doing this for three years.

Pule is requesting a loan, which she will use to buy buy chemicals, weed killer, rakes, and bush knives to help her in planting her crops. She has been a member of SBPD since 2012. Pule will use the profits from her sales to support her family as well as her children's education.
