A loan of $450 helped to purchase ingredients to make breadfruit products for sale.


Maele's story

Maele is 30 years old and married with 2 children. She is starting a business venture selling breadfruit products in the local community. Maele needs a loan of $1,000 WST to purchase raw ingredients needed to make products, such as breadfruit chips, for sale. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 350 talas per week) to improve and expand the business. Maele 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 Maele's first loan with SPBD.
