Satia's story

Satia C. is 37 years old, married and has four children. Satia’s husband has been unable to provide a steady income that can support their family. Therefore, when she heard about the loan facilities available to women entrepreneurs, she joined SPBD’s program. Satia was confident that she could run her own business and support the family. She has since used two small loans to open a beach fale business. Her fales are small open huts with thatched roofs built in the style of traditonal Samoan houses. Satia caters to backpackers and picnickers. She is sure of the demand for her fales given their unbeatable location on the white sandy beaches along Samoa’s coast. She is anxious to build additional fales. She will use another loan to put up three more fales.
