Tumama'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.

Tumama's story

Tumama is a 39-year-old married woman with 4 children. She runs a business selling vegetables (cabbages and cucumbers) in her community to earn a living. She has 3 years of experience with this business. Tumama is a Samoan citizen who 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 a wheelbarrow. She herself believes that using the wheelbarrow to deliver for her business is making her strong, happy and healthy. Tumama needs a loan to purchase more equipment (a water tank, chemicals, vegetable seeds, soil, and 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 as well as to send her children to school. She became a member of SPBD in 2017.
