Ateliana's story

Ateliana leverages her skills in traditional Samoan weaving to support her family. She weaves tablemats, hand fans and floor mats. She has regular customers at the local market where she sells her handmade goods. Ateliana can earn up to ST 95 (approximately USD 36) a day from her sales. The income is a critical contribution to supporting her family and keeping her children in school. Ateliana happily tells about the satisfaction and confidence she has earned since using the SPBD loans to be able to expand her product line and keep a consistent supply of goods for sale. She enjoys the time she spends at the market selling her goods, as it gives her some exercise and time outside the home. Ateliana is committed to her business and leveraging her talents to earn income for the sake of her family.
