A loan of $1,200 helped purchase fertilizer and basic tools.

Leitu's story

Leitu lives in a small Samoan village with her husband and newborn baby. Her husband works as a carpenter and earns just enough to provide for the basic necessities for their family of three. Leitu’s parents recently passed away, and left her their small taro plantation. Leitu capitalized on this opportunity to earn additional income. She joined SPBD to gain access to the capital necessary for her to develop her land into a productive taro farm. She is requesting loans to purchase fertilizer and some basic tools to help her through her first large harvest seasons
