Tului
Tului E., 27, is married and has four children. She has many years experience in the plantation business. She sells to the villagers and public people two days per week. Her husband is a very good carpenter, and his work supports the family and her business as well. This is Tului's first loan with SPBD, which is her only access to capital because she has never been able to qualify for a loan from traditional banks. She plans to purchase fertilizer, vegetable seeds, chemicals, and plastic bags for selling her plantation items.
