A loan of $675 helped to purchase weed killers for growing bananas.


Foloi's story

Foloi is 50 years old and married with four children. She plants and harvests bananas for sale. She has two years of experience in this business. Foloi needs a loan of WST $1,500 to purchase weed killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 350 talas or US $146 per week) to continue improving her plantation.

In 2011, Foloi 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 Foloi's second loan from SPBD.
