A loan of $450 helped to purchase supplies for her lawn-mowing business.


Taumaloto's story

Taumaloto is 52 years old and married with seven children. She runs a small lawn-mowing business in which she cuts grass for people in her community. She has one year of experience with this business. Taumaloto needs a loan of 1,000 talas to purchase supplies to keep mowing lawns. She plans to use her profits (estimated to be 400 talas per week) to continuing improving her new business. In 2012, Taumaloto 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 Taumaloto's first loan with SPBD.
