Sapela's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a water tank, chemicals, vegetable seeds, soil, and a rake.

Sapela's story

Sapela is a 25 year old married woman with 3 children. She runs a business selling vegetables (cabbage, cucumbers) in her community to earn a living. She has 3 years of experience with this business.

Sapela is a Samoan citizen, she works very hard to satisfy her customers with her fresh vegetables. Every day except for Saturday and Sunday she delivers her vegetables to villages using the wheelbarrow. She believes that using the wheelbarrow and in the meantime delivering her business goods is also making her strong, happy, and healthy.

Sapela needs a loan to purchase more equipment (a water tank, chemicals, vegetable seeds, soil, a rake) to help take her business to the next level. Her dream is to one day earn more, to buy her own vehicle to help her run the business, and send her children to school. She became a member of SPBD in 2016.
