Tumema is 47 years old and is married with 7 children. She has a small garden where she grows taro, bananas, and yams so that she can sell them in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for 5 years. Tumema needs a loan to buy another wheelbarrow, a shovel, a rake, some bush-knives, weedkiller spray and more tiapula.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2010, and she joined to gain access to financial stability. Tumema will use the profits from her sales to improve her family's assets.
