Foai's story

When Foai heard about the SBPD program, she thought that it was a good opportunity for her and her family to get into fishing as a business and see whether they could achieve success. Foai is now operating a successful fishing business. Her husband goes out to sea to fish, and she sells the fish directly to the people in the village or at the fish market.

Foai’s family now has a fishing boat, which was financed by loans from SPBD. Her husband goes out to fish six days a week, if the weather permits. The least Foai realizes from her sales is never less than $600ST a week. Foai’s savings passbook shows that she saves more than the usual person in business.
