A loan helped to buy cocoa plants, a lawn mower, chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and a chainsaw.


Pitoau's story

Pitoau is a 36-year-old married woman with 6 children. She runs a business selling Samoan cocoa in her community to earn a living. She also provides lawn-mowing services to earn extra income. She has 4 years of experience with this business. Pitoau works very hard to please her customers with her fresh cocoa and her good service in mowing lawns. She even delivers her products to the flea market using the bus as transportation. She thinks she could earn more income if she plants more cocoa, but in order to do this, Pitoau needs a loan to buy cocoa plants, a lawn mower, chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and a chainsaw to help her run the business.

She comes from a family in which no one works to earn a living, so her business will help her family's needs. Her dream is that one day, her family will have a great living standard. She became a member of SPBD in 2016 to seek finance for her business. Pitoau realized that your support will be a big help for her and her family to develop through financing.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
