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

A loan helped to buy chemicals, fertiliser, wheelbarrow, tiller, rake, new gumboots and a spade.

Puipui's story

Puipui is 38 years old, married and has 4 children. She has a small plantation where she grows taro and bananas that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for more than 2 years. She has many loyal customers due to her fresh products and good customer service.

Puipui needs a loan to buy chemicals, fertiliser, a new wheelbarrow, a tiller, a rake, new gumboots and a spade, to help her with the business and take her business to the next level. She will use the profit from her sales to pay for her family’s weekly expenses.

Puipui has been a member of SPBD since 2011 and her dream is one day to have her own vehicle to make her business' deliveries. Puipui is very grateful for your support through helping herself to build a small business to develop her family's living standards.
