SPBD loans are Seleisa’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Part of her loan will be used to buy cement, iron roofing, and timbers for home improvement. She also produces Samoan cocoa which is one of the Samoans' favorite drinks and sells popcorn just to back up her vegetable garden.
