Koleta
Koleta is a 62-year-old widow with six children. She has a small vegetable garden, where she grows cabbages and cucumbers that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for 11 years.

Koleta needs a loan to buy vegetable seeds, insect poison, fertilizer, a crowbar, a new wheelbarrow, and a tiller.

She has been a member of South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) since 2003. Koleta will use the profits from her sales to pay for her family's weekly expenses.
