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

Tiute's story

Tiute is a 56-year-old married woman with seven children. She runs a business selling vegetables (cabbage, cucumber) in her community in order to earn a living, and has three years of experience with this business.

Tiute is a Samoan citizen and works very hard to supply her customers with fresh vegetables. Every day except for Saturday and Sunday, she delivers her vegetables to the villages using a wheelbarrow. She believes that using the wheelbarrow to deliver her vegetables also makes her strong, happy and healthy.

Tiute is applying for 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 to one day earn more to buy her own vehicle to help her run the business, and to send her children to school. Tiute became a member of SPBD in 2019.
