Fualaau's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy bush knives, a wheelbarrow, and some taro root and to pay for her children's school fees.
Fualaau is a 48-year-old married woman with seven children. She has a small plantation that grows taro, bananas, and taamu (a large root vegetable like taro) to earn a living. She has been doing this for many years. Fualaau has requested a loan to buy bush knives, a wheel barrow, and some taro root and to pay for her children's fees. She has been a member of SBPD since 2009. With her profits, Fualaau hopes to improve her house and save more for future emergencies.
