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


Talmalii's story

Tamalii is twenty-nine years old and is married with three children. Tamalii owns and operates a business venture, planting and harvesting taro for sale. She has many years of experience in this business. Tamalii needs a loan of WST 1,000 to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 300 talas or US $125 per week) to improve/expand the business. In 2007, Tamalii 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 Tamalii's fifth loan with SPBD.
