A loan of $325 helped purchase carved designs, paint, and raw materials for Elei material.


Janet's story

Janet P., 24, is married. She has many years of experience working in the Elei printing business. She sells Elei, Samoan screen-printed material, to the villagers and the public 5 days per week.

Janet is requesting her first loan, which she plans to use to purchase more carved designs, paint, and raw materials for printing Elei material. She expects her weekly profit to be 300 Tala (about 125 USD). SPBD loans are Janet’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks.
