Mataina's story

Mataina is a 33-year-old married woman with 4 children. She runs a business selling taro and banana in her community to earn a living. She has 4 years of experience with this business.

Mataina works very hard to please her customers with her fresh taro and banana. She thought she would earn more income if she planted more banana and taro. In order to do this, Mataina needs a loan to buy taro roots (seedlings), banana tubes (seedlings), chemicals, a bag back sprayer, and a chainsaw, to help her run the business.

She even delivers her products to the flea market by using the bus (transportation). She comes from a family in which no one works to earn a living. Only her business will help her family needs. Her dream is that one day her family will have a great living standard.

She became a member of SPBD in 2016 to seek financing for her business. Mataina realizes that your support will be a big help for her and her family to develop through financing.
