A loan helped to buy taro roots (seedling), banana tube (seedling), chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and a chainsaw to expand her farming business.


Faialofa's story

Faialofa is a 54-year-old married woman with 9 children. She runs a business selling taro and bananas in her community to earn a living. She delivers her products to the market by bus. She has 4 years of experience with this business.

Faialofa and her older children work very hard to please her customers with her fresh taro and bananas. She believes she will earn more income if she plants more bananas and taro, but to do this, Faialofa needs a loan to buy taro roots (seedling), banana tube (seedling), chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and a chainsaw.

Her business will help her meet her family's needs. Her dream is to one day export her produce overseas.

She became a member of SPBD in 2016 to seek financial assistance for her business. Faialofa realizes that your support will be a big help for her and her family.
