Malaeolema'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.

Malaeolema's story

Malaeolema is a 64-year-old married woman with eight children. She runs a business selling vegetables (such as cabbage and cucumber) in her community in order to earn a living. She has 9 years of experience with this business.

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

Malaeolema needs a loan to purchase more equipment (like 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 send her children to school. She became a member of SPBD in 2016.
