Foai’s family now has a fishing boat, which was financed by loans from SPBD. Her husband goes out to fish six days a week, if the weather permits. The least Foai realizes from her sales is never less than $600ST a week. Foai’s savings passbook shows that she saves more than the usual person in business.
