Tiaina
Tiaina is 25 years old, single, and has three children. She has a small plantation where she grows taro that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for one year. Tiaina needs a loan to buy chemicals, fertilizer, a new wheelbarrow, a tiller, a rake, a spade, and gloves. She became a member of SPBD this year to gain access to capital. Tiaina will use the profits from her sales to pay for her family's weekly expenses.
