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

A loan helped to buy alo and mulberry for her business.

Folauhelotu's story

Folauhelotu is a single mother who raises her three children with the earning she makes from weaving tapas and selling them out. She has run this business with the support of her SPBD loans for decades, and it is their main source of income.

Once in a week, she is joined by a group of women to make tapas. Together they design it, make more than one tapas, then sell the tapas to earn income.

People may look down on her for being a single mother, but Folauhelotu wants to make sure that she can still complete her chores as a mother,

Her children's educational expenses are her main priority, and she promised to educate her children for who they become today.

This loan is to purchase efficient mulberry for her business and also pay women to make her tapas, so she can also have some rest time.
