Maria Rosa
Maria Rosa is twenty-three years of age and is married with three children.

Maria Rosa is starting a business venture, planting & harvesting taro for sale. She needs a loan of WST $2,000 to purchase weed-killers such as Gramoxome. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 400 talas or US $167 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2009, Maria Rosa joined SPBD to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks, because they lack collateral. This is Maria Rosa's 3rd loan with SPBD.
