Savalia F. is 72 years old and married with eleven children. She has 5 years of experience running a general store. Her shop is open seven days a week to the public and local villagers.

Savalia has benefited from four previous successful SPBD (South Pacific Business Development) loans. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 450 Tala (~$187 USD). SPBD loans are Legatasi's only access to capital, because she is not able to qualify for a traditional bank loan. She will use her loan to purchase a new freezer for her store, as well as buy sacks of sugar, rice, and salt, and cases of lamp chops and chicken thighs to sell.
