Toilalo needs a loan of WST $1,500 to purchase a new canoe,fishing net and spears. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 200 talas or US $83 per week) to improve/expand the business.

Toilalo joined SPBD to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks, because they lack collateral. This is Toilalo's 2nd loan with SPBD.
