A loan helped to buy a sack of taro, bananas, bottles of vegetable oil, a frying pan, and a wooden spoon.


Pau's story

Pau is a 64-year-old mother of one child. She runs a small business selling banana and taro chips in her village and at the market to earn a living. She has been doing this for more than five years.

Pau has requested a loan to buy a sack of taro, bananas, bottles of vegetable oil, a frying pan, and a wooden spoon to help her run the business. She hopes to use her profits to build a chips store in the near future and provide for her family needs.

Pau became a member of SPBD in 2019.
