A loan of $450 helped to purchase materials to make breadfruit food products to sell.


Soosemea's story

Soosemea is 22 years old and unmarried. To help support herself and her family, she is starting a business venture selling breadfruit products, such as chips, in her community. Soosemea needs a loan of 1000 talas (WST) to purchase raw ingredients needed to make products for sale. She plans to use the profit from her sales (estimated to be 300 talas or US $125 per week) to financially support immediate members of her family.

Soosemea 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 Soosemea's first loan with SPBD.
