Sara's story

Sara L., 27, is married with 5 children and lives at Seesee on Upolu Island, Samoa. She has been making the traditional printed fabric called "elei" for a year. She sells to the public and villagers 3 days per week.

Sara is asking for her first loan with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 350 Tala (US$145). SPBD loans are Sara’s only access to capital because she has not been able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. She will use this loan to buy equipment (paint, material, brushes, etc) for the production of elei material.
