Lemafoe's story

Lemafoe is 39 years old married with 7 children. She is the Centre Chief for Levili Tuvao. Her husband works for one building company in town and his salary is not sufficient to look after the family. Lemafoe is very hard working and she has never relied on her husband for support. She started off with a pancake business and now she is running a flea market. Lemafoe has sacrificed for many years and she believes that hard work is the key to success. She is requesting a loan to buy supplies for her flea market. She is very happy and very delighted by the opportunity offered by SPBD. She hopes to help her family and improve her business.
