Seleisa's story

Seleisa S., 35, is married with 7 children. She has many years of experience in selling vegetables and fruit. She sells to the villagers, public, and families 5 days per week. She has 4 previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 450 Tala (~187 USD).



SPBD loans are Seleisa’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Part of her loan will be used to buy cement, iron roofing, and timbers for home improvement. She also produces Samoan cocoa which is one of the Samoans' favorite drinks and sells popcorn just to back up her vegetable garden.
