Setima

Samoa
Maagiagi, Samoa / General Store

A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase more goods for her retail shop and purchase a billiard table to start a billiard game business near her store.


Setima's story

Setima used to work, but was forced to quit her job to look after her four little children. Now that her children are older, Setima realized that in order to augment her husband’s salary, she needed to also earn living. Setima then joined the SPBD microfinance program to start a small retail shop in front of her house. She paid off that loan and now plans to obtain a bigger loan to expand her shop, and also build a billiard game shed near it, as a way of attracting more customers to her store.
