Atila's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome.

Atila's story

Atila M. is 52 and married with 8 children (ages 5 - 24). She owns a business venture, planting & harvesting taro for sale. Atila has many years of experience in this business. Atila needs a loan of WST $2000 to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 500 talas or US $208 per week) to improve/expand the business. In 2006, Atila joined SPBD. This is her 4th loan with SPBD. SPBD's loans are Atila'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.
