A loan of $500 helped to pay her children's school fees.

Luaupu's story

Luaupu F., 30, is married with four children. She has four years of experience in the bingo business. She sells to the general public/villagers three days per week. She has had three previous loans with SPBD, Kiva's partner. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 750 Tala (about $312).

SPBD loans are Luaupu’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Her loan will help pay her children's school fees because the business is running well and it is generating enough income for her family to survive on.
