Fuatino Josephine
Fuatino is a 22-year-old woman with one child. She has a vegetable garden business that she started six months ago. She has just joined SPBD seeking financial assistance to further improve and enhance her vegetable garden to make a decent profit to take care of her family. She plans to use this loan to purchase vegetable seeds, a mist blower, chemicals, rakes, fertilizers, bush knives, rolls of fencing wire, spades, and shovels to further expand her garden. Fuatino hopes to improve her family's livelihood with the profit she makes from her business and not have to depend on family overseas for money.
