Satupaitea Pitonuu - Group 1's story

Satupaitea Pitonuu Centre started in December of last year. The first group of women who joined and were trained with the program are largely from households subsisting on fishing activities. The husbands and sons fish while the female members of the household sell the catch. Kirisitina F., the leader of this group, heard about the savings and loans services of SPBD and started motivating ladies in her village to join the program. They aspire to improve their fishing equipment to bring in better catches in the future. They have undergone the four week training and have submitted their business plans and budgets for their initial loan with SPBD.

In this group: Kirisitina, Folole, Kerisimasi, Kolopa, Masina, Peka, Tafaganiu
