Fati's story

Fati Mema M. is 37 and married with 3 children. She owns a business venture, providing clothing alteration & tailoring services to local community members. Fati Mema has 4 years of experience in this business. Fati Mema needs a loan of WST $1500 to purchase additional fabrics & materials. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 600 talas or US $250 per week) to improve/expand the business. In 2009, Fati Mema joined SPBD. This is her 2nd loan with SPBD. SPBD's loans are Fati Mema's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks. About SPBD In 2000, Greg Casagrande founded SPBD and since then, it has expanded from the main island of Upolu in Samoa to Savaii, as well as Tonga. SPBD's philosophy of lending is based upon the Grameen Bank lending method.
