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

A loan helped to buy materials, such as pandanus, for her weaving business.

Pasimati's story

Pasimati is 47 years old and married with twelve children and two grandchildren. Fifteen people live in her home. Seven of her children are currently attending school.

She had prior loans from SPBD and used the proceeds to buy materials for her weaving business; this is her sixth loan cycle.

She weaves mats and ta'ovala by herself, but when customer demand increases, she will employ one or two others to help.

She sells her items in the market or at her own house. She uses her earnings to provide for her family and repay her loans.

Pasimati is working hard in her business to achieve her dream for the future: she wants to build a new house to accommodate her family.
