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

A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Valenitini's story

Valenitini is 41 years old, the mother of eight children, and a married woman. Her husband works as a farmer while Valenitini is running her business of weaving to help with their family's financial matters. There are four children who are currently attending school, and four who are not in school. Valenitini had her loan from SPBD and used it to buy her pandanus for her weaving, so this is her third loan cycle.

She is weaving at her home and she's running her business from there. She sells out her weaving when it's ready in order to earn income for her family and her business profits. She works from Monday until the weekend in her business from morning to evening time because she's working hard to archive her dream in her business to be able to earn more income to build a new house for her family.
