A loan of $350 helped to buy timber and cement for home improvement.


Tuuipo's story

Tuuipo L., 35, is married with seven children. She has four years of experience in the fishing business. She sells to the village people and to the public four days per week. She has had one previous loan with Kiva's partner SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 70 Tala.

SPBD loans are Tuuipo’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 timber and cement for home improvement and the rest will be saved for the business.
