Pepa
Pepa T., 52, is married with two children. She has many years of experience in her plantation business. She sells to the general public six days per week and expects her weekly net cash flow to be 700 Tala (~260 USD). She has two previous loans with SPBD.

SPBD loans are Pepa’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks.
