Sisigafua's story

Sisigafua is a 68-year-old widow with 9 children. She runs a business selling vegetables (cabbages, cucumbers) in her community to earn a living. She has 3 years of experience with this business.

Sisigafua is a Samoan citizen. She 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 also believes that using the wheelbarrow to make deliveries for her business is making her strong, happy, and healthy.

Sisigafua needs a loan to purchase more equipment (a water tank, chemicals, vegetable seeds, soil, a rake) to help take her business to the next level.

Sisigafua's dream is to one day earn more so she can buy her own vehicle to help her run her business and send her grandchildren to school. She became a member of SPBD in 2017.
