A loan helped to purchase general farm supplies & equipment.


Faaolo's story

"Faaolo is forty five years old and is married. She has seven children. Faaolo owns & operates a business venture, planting & harvesting taro for sale. She has 3 years of experience in this business. Faaolo needs a loan of WST $1,500 to purchase general farm supplies & equipment. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 500 talas or US $208 per week) to supplement her family's income.

In 2009, Faaolo 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 Faaolo's 2nd loan with SPBD.
