Sivai has had five prior loans from SPBD, and expects to earn a weekly net cash flow of $166. SPBD loans are Sivai’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan from traditional banks. She will use part of her loan to increase her earnings by building a copra dryer, which people in this part of the world use to process coconuts.
