A loan of $450 helped to purchase weed-killers to grow ta'amu.


Vaiono's story

Vaiono is 43 years old and married with four children. She owns and operates a business venture, planting and harvesting ta'amu for sale. She has two years of experience in this business. Vaiono needs a loan of WST 1,000 to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the profit from her sales (estimated to be WST 300 per week) to continue improving her land.

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