A loan of $675 helped to purchase additional fabrics & materials.


Tulai's story

Tulai is forty-six years of age and is married with four children. She owns & operates a business venture, selling lavalavas (bottom-half wrap-around prints worn by both men and women). She has 2 years of experience in this business. Tulai needs a loan of WST 1,500 to purchase additional fabrics & materials. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 400 talas or US $167 per week) to expand the business.

In 2010, Tulai 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 Tulai's 2nd loan with SPBD.
