Faaloiloia's story

Faaloiloia is 30 years old and has three children.

Faaloiloia owns and operates a business venture, selling baked goods in the local community. She has one year of experience in this business. Faaloiloia needs a loan of WST 1,000 to purchase sacks of flour, sugar and baking powder. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 340 talas or US $142 per week) to improve and expand her business.

In 2012, Faaloiloia 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 Faaloiloia's first loan with SPBD.
