Fiailoa's story

Fiailoa F. is 61 and married with 10 children. She owns a business venture, planting and harvesting taro for sale. Fiailoa has one year of experience in this business. Fiailoa needs a loan of 1000 talas to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 150 talas or US $63 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2010, Fiailoa joined SPBD. This is her 1st loan with SPBD. SPBD's loans are Fiailoa's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
