Silalotalie has a vision for the future. Silalotalie is one of the older members in the program, and she is an honest and hard worker. This is Silalotalie’s seventh loan, and she has no arrears on her repayment performance.

Silalotalie is a woman who can do a man’s work. She may look fragile when you see her, but she is very strong. She operates two businesses together: a shop and a plantation. The ideas and planning are hers. She thinks that the plantation is helpful and supportive for the shop and for family food so that no money will be spent on buying taro or bananas. She would like to use the loan to restock the shop and buy planting tools.
