Natia's story

Natia is married with two children. She started her small grocery business from a small loan she got from joining the SPBD microfinance program. Now on her third loan cycle, she intends to further expand her business by purchasing additional stocks. She intends to set up a Elei printing -- a traditional Samoan way of handprinting textiles -- business in the future using the additional earnings she will get from her business. She believes that with two businesses, in the future she will be able to significantly contribute to her household income.
