Tiana's story

Tiana is a married mother of two from the Samoan village of Faatoia. She runs a general store in this small village. While her husband is employed, his earnings do not cover the expenses of their family. Tiana opened a small store, and the income is a crucial supplement to the family finances. Tiana has been able to use past loans to finance expanding the inventory for her store, and she will use these loan funds for a similar purpose. Tiana is determined to provide for her family’s future, and thus makes a weekly deposit in her savings account.
