Happy Birthday to our very own Bigwig. Bigwig turns older today though, honestly, I’ve lost count on which one this might be. I can barely remember my own age any more. Happy Birthday, Brother. Hope you have a good one.

As part of…..Bible School, or Father’s Day, or some such occasion, Ngnat presented her mother and I with a number of coupons good for various things, such as “A big hug,” or “Cleaning my room.” Very cute.
One was for “Seding the Table.” Even Cuter!
So last night, I redeemed it, giving it back to her with an attached note, which read “echo table | sed s/table/”table with plates, utensils and glasses”/
Neither she nor the Sainted Wife thought it was as funny as I did.
This month’s loan goes to Lualuai Niutua, of Samoa.
Lualuai Niutua is a 22 year old single mother with two children. She has two years of experience as a food vendor selling to the general public four days per week. She earns a weekly net cash flow of 600 Tala (~250 USD). SPBD loans are Lualuai’s only access to capital because she was has not qualified for a loan from traditional banks. She is requesting a loan to to purchase chicken, tomato sauce, flour, a new gas oven, potatoes, cooking oil and salt, as well as to purchase cement and iron roofing to renovate her small house. She has received two previous loans from SPBD.
