Teuila's story

Teuila is 33 years old and married with three children.

She has a kava business, grinding and packing kava, filling in plastic bags with it, and selling it in her community or at the market. Teuila needs a loan to buy more plastic bags, a wheelbarrow, weedkiller spray, and bush knives, etc to help her with the ongoing business.

She has been a member of SPBD since 2010. Teuila hopes to use her earnings to improve her family assets.
