A loan of $850 helped purchase boat.


Sela's story

Sela grew up in Faleula and became a talented fisherman, but at the expense of an education. As a result, when she was married, she did not have any other marketable skills, and her family lived in poverty. Under the guidance of SPBD, she has put her fishing skills to good use by establishing a small fishing business that caters to locals. She has been in business for five years, and is now applying for a loan of $850 in order to purchase a new boat to expand her business in order to improve her living conditions as well as provide an education to her five children so that they will have the opportunities that she did not have.
