Tuisfolau's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome.
Tusifolau is sixty years old. She is married and has 7 children. Tusifolau owns & operates a business venture, which involves planting and harvesting taro for sale. She has 3 years of experience in this business. Tusifolau needs a loan of WST 1,000 (Talas) to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 450 Talas or US $188 per week) to improve/expand the business. Tusifolau joined SPBD to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks because they lack collateral. This is Tusifolau's 2nd loan with SPBD.
