A loan of $1,100 helped to improve her banana- and taro-selling business by purchasing seeds and pesticides.


Mamaioa's story

Mamaioa N. is 72 years old and married with ten children. She has many years of experience selling bananas and taro. She sells her fruits and vegetables in her village and to the public three days a week.

Mamaioa has benefited from three successful SPBD (South Pacific Business Development) loans. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 400 Tala (~$166 USD). SPBD loans are Mamaioa's only access to capital, because she is not able to qualify for a traditional bank loan. She will use her loan to improve her banana- and taro-selling business by purchasing seeds and pesticides. Her husband will also help her to operate the business.
