Anamaria is a forty-seven year old married woman with four children. Her husband doesn't work but two of her daughters have jobs. She joined the SPBD Programme in 2004, with $1750.00 as her last loan amount. That loan helped buy different supplies for her business, support her family and pay school fees for her two children who are still attending school. She plans to enlarge her Flea Market; therefore, she is selling lavalavas which she has printed herself, along with different handicrafts which she believes will attract a lot of interest not only from the tourists, but also from locals.
