In 2010, Manino joined SPBD to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Having repaid a previous loan of 1000 WST that was used to purchase general farm supplies and equipment, she is now requesting a new loan of 1000 WST to purchase sacks of fertilizers and gromozones. Manino plans to use the additional revenue arising from the loan to improve/expand her enterprise.
