A loan of $450 helped to purchase general farm supplies and equipment.


Faauu's story

Faau is a mother of two and she's single.

Faauu is starting a business venture, planting and harvesting taro for sale. Faauu needs a loan of WST $1,000 to purchase general farm supplies and equipment. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 300 talas or US $125 per week) to financially support immediate members of her family.

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