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

A loan helped to hire people helping her weaving to complete some orders for customers that requested a lot of mats and ta'ovala.

'Ofa's story

Ofa is 37 years old, mother of three children, and two of them are currently attending school.
She's running her two businesses of weaving and a retail store. She requested a loan from SPBD and used it for her weaving business to hire some people to help her in weaving some mats and ta'ovala for customers so she can deliver in time. Her retail store is open everyday with the help of her husband. They share time as shopkeeper, while she's busy with weaving. 'Ofa is confidently working hard in both of her business in order to earn money, helping to provide a kliving for her family, and to help pay back her loan.
In the future she has a vision for her businesses to generate more income to build her family a new house and to supply the school supplies for her children, and buy them some Christmas presents.
