Liua Isapela's story

Liua Isapela M., 35 years old, is from Faleu Manono and owns a banana plantation (pictured in the photo), even though it is quite unusual for a woman. For Liua, the banana plantation is an additional source of income, along fine mat making, handicraft production and other tasks traditionally carried out by women. The banana plantation provides income and a source of food for Liua's family. Even though getting a good plantation running requires hard work, it has been worth it for Liua. The SPBD assistance has already helped Liua develop her talent as an agriculturalist, and now she is asking for a loan of US$300 to purchase agricultural chemicals to increase the volume of banana harvest.
