Lusila
Lusila is 36 years old and married with 5 children. She owns & operates a business venture, planting & harvesting cocoa for sale. She has many years of experience in this business. Lusila needs a loan of WST 1,000 to purchase fertilizers such as manure. She plans to use the profit from her sales (estimated to be 350 talas per week) to continue improving her land.

In 2011, Lusila 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 Lusila's 2nd loan with SPBD.
