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

A loan helped to buy a water tank, chemicals, vegetable seeds, soil, and a rake.

Taumata's story

Taumata is a 55-year-old married woman with 7 children. She runs a business selling vegetables (cabbage, cucumber) in her community to earn a living. She has 3 years of experience with this business. Taumata is a Samoan citizen and she works very hard to satisfy her customers with her fresh vegetables. Everyday, except for Saturday and Sunday, she delivers her vegetables to villages using a wheelbarrow. She believes that using the wheelbarrow to make deliveries for her business is making her strong, happy, and healthy. Taumata needs a loan to purchase more equipment (a water tank, chemicals, vegetable seeds, soil, and a rake) to help take her business to the next level. Her dream is that one day she will earn more to buy her own vehicle to help her run the business and send her children to school. She became a member of SPBD in 2016.
