More information about this loan

This loan is part of SPBD's new SME (small and medium-sized enterprises) loan program. The goal is to serve the "missing middle," a group of borrowers that requires loan amounts too large for typical microfinance, but is still seen as too risky by commercial institutions. In addition to credit, SPBD also provides in-depth training to help entrepreneurs successfully scale their businesses.
