Vaiauau's story

Vaiauau is a 56-year-old mother with three children. She owns and operates a small business selling elei printed materials at the market to earn a living. She works twice a day in making new elei prints in order to sell more to earn a better profit.

Vaiauau needs a loan to buy rolling materials, paint color, paint brushes, elei designs, containers, and a printing machine to assist her to run the business. She has been doing this for more than two years. Vaiauau hopes to build a small elei shop in her village. She became a member of SPBD in 2017.
