A loan of $675 helped to purchase ingredients to make baked goods.


Sape's story

Sape is 40 years old and married with five children. She sells baked goods in the local community. She has two years of experience in this business.

Sape needs a loan of 1,500 Samoa talas (WST) to purchase raw ingredients needed to make products for sale. She plans to use the profit from her sales (estimated to be 350 talas or about US $146 per week) to continue improving the business.

In 2011, Sape 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 Sape's second loan with SPBD.
