Mataomanu is a married mother of six children. While her husband has a steady job, Mataomanu feels strongly about being financially independent and does not want to rely on her husband for money.

She says she only asks her husband for money if she needs it to finance her business.

Mataomanu is passionate about keeping her business strong. With her flea market stall, she can bring in revenue up to ST 250 (about USD 100) on a good day.

With this income stream, she is able to provide for most of the household needs and still work on growing her savings account balance. A loan to Mataomanu would help her finance new inventory to sell at her flea market stall.
