Fuailelagi A., 55, is married with seven children. She has three years of experience in the plantation and fishing businesses. She sells to the general public/villagers four days per week.

She has had two previous loans with SPBD, Kiva's partner. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 1000 Tala (about $416).

SPBD loans are Fuailelagi’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Her loan will be used to purchase a new fishing canoe, fishing gear and chemicals for the plantation.
