Vii's story

Most people wouldn’t enjoy waking up every single morning to face a day of work in their field. But that is seventy-one year old Vii’s life, and she loves it. Although her husband passed away, her ten children remain near her and help her tend the plantation. Vii is also a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with the disease in 2003, but today, she remains active and strong. Shortly after her bout with cancer, Vii joined the SPBD program to gain access to the capital needed to keep reinvesting in her only income source, her taro plantation. She has used past loan funds to purchase fertilizer, fencing and various tools. She is seeking additional loan funds for the same purpose.
