Tisiola's story

Tisiola is a 53-year-old mother of nine from the capital area of Tongatapu. Her husband is a farmer, and they live in their own home.

Her business is marketing crops. Her husband grows different crops and when they are harvested, Tisiola takes them to the local market to sell. These crops include yams, taro, kumara, and also cassava and green leaves. Her market runs regularly.

Tisiola makes good earnings for their family. This is their main source of income. Her business runs very actively and Tisiola is a very trusted client of SPBD. That is why she moved to the SME loan category.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy more pieces of land in order to expand their plantation and also to pay more workers to help her husband in the plantation. Her vision for the future is to continue growing her business and become a successful business woman.
