but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase additional fabrics and materials.
Naomi F. is 33 and married with three children. She owns a business, providing clothing alteration and tailoring services to local community members. Naomi has six years of experience in this business. Naomi needs a loan of WST $1000 to purchase additional fabrics and materials. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 500 talas or US $208 per week) to improve/expand the business. Naomi joined SPBD, and this is her third loan with SPBD. SPBD's loans are Naomi'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.
