A loan of $900 helped buy fishing gears and other equipment.

Tagiilima's story

Tagiilima is a 45-year old married mother of eight children. While three of her grown children emigrated to New Zealand to seek better employment, the remaining five are young and are still with Tagiilima.

Tagiilima and her husband are fishermen and rely on their fishing expeditions as their sole source of income to provide for their family and finance their children’s education. With the help of an SPBD loan, they have been able to set up a small shop to sell their fishing catch and a few other goods. With the first loan fully repaid, Tagiilima is seeking an additional loan to buy fishing gears and upgrade their fishing nets. Someday, Tagiilima hopes that they can save enough money to expand their shop into a large village store and rely less on their daily catch to cover the expenses of their large family.
