Vaoiva has requested a loan in order to buy tools, such as materials to build fences for the housing of her chickens. This will be her first loan with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 350 Tala (about $145).
SPBD loans are Vaoiva’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. She is very happy to obtain this loan and hopes to become a long-term participant in the program. She appreciates their much-needed help.
