A loan of $750 helped to assist with her cattle farm.

Pogisa's story

Pogisa is married with 5 children. She lives in Aleipata (a group of islands off Eastern Samoa) with her elderly parents. She comes from a poor familly and faces a lot of problems looking after her family from day to day. She used to have a plantation which formed the main source of income for her family for some time. Her husband is unemployed but he has been very supportive of his wife.

Pogisa joined SPBD in May 2007. She bought two cattle to start a cattle farm with her first loan. Now she has almost ten cattle. She has two dairy cows whose milk she plans to sell to local shops in the village and the town area as another source of income for her and her family. She is seeking a $750 loan to help her with her cattle farm.
