A loan of $425 helped to purchase weed killers such as Gramoxome.


Aunofo's story

Aunofo is 62 years of age and married with eight children. She owns and operates a business venture, planting and harvesting taro for sale. She has many years of experience in this business. Aunofo needs a loan of 1000 Samoa talas (WST) to purchase weed killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 500 talas or US $208 per week) to improve/expand the business.

Aunofo joined SPBD in 2011 to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks because they lack collateral. This is Aunofo's first loan with SPBD.
