A loan of $450 helped to purchase weed-killers, such as Gramoxome, to help her crops grow.


Puna's story

Puna is 36 years old and married with five children. She is starting a business venture, growing and harvesting a variety of crops for sale. Puna needs a loan of 1,000 Samoa talas (WST) to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 300 talas per week) to continue improving her land. In 2012, Puna 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 Puna's first loan with SPBD.
