Temukisa has a previous loan with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 150 Tala (US$62). SPBD loans are Temukisa’s only access to capital because she has not been able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. She will use this loan to purchase agricultural chemicals and pesticides.
