Valelia is a very active woman who puts all of her energy into her business because it is her family's major source of income. She is requesting a loan to purchase supplies for her plantation, such as chemicals, a back sprayer, fertilizer, and bush knives. She would also like to use part of the loan to purchase supplies and tools (such as bricks, cement, galvanized nails, and a hammer) to make some home repairs.
She expects to earn a weekly profit of 300 Tala (about 125 USD). She had 3 previous loans with SPBD. SPBD loans are Valelia’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks.
