Manino's story

Manino, a 54-year-old woman living in the town of Sili, is engaged and has nine grown children. To make a living, Manino plants and harvests taro for sale. Engaged in this business for over three years, she earns approximately 720 WST a month.

In 2010, Manino joined SPBD to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Having repaid a previous loan of 1000 WST that was used to purchase general farm supplies and equipment, she is now requesting a new loan of 1000 WST to purchase sacks of fertilizers and gromozones. Manino plans to use the additional revenue arising from the loan to improve/expand her enterprise.
