A loan of $725 helped to buy an extra pair of fishing shoes for her husband, a fishing net, and to make home repairs.


Talita's story

Talita Foleni, 33, is married with 2 children. She has many years of experience in the fish business. She sells to the villagers and the general public 4 days per week. She has 3 previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 450 Tala (~187 USD). SPBD loans are Talita’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Her earnings will also help her with her many family obligations. Her husband does the fishing duty.
