Tusiupu's story

Tusiupu is 43 years old, married, and has one child. She has a small plantation business where she grows taros and bananas. She sells the produce in her community or at the market. She has been doing the work for two years. She has many loyal customers because her agricultural products are fresh and she serves her customers well.

Tusiupu needs a loan to buy chemicals, fertilizers, a new wheelbarrow, a tiller, a rake, new gumboots, a spade, hose, and backpack blower to help her with the business and improve it further. She will use the profit from her sales to pay for her family’s weekly expenses. Tusiupu joined South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) in 2016.
