Mrs S. is married with 3 children. She and her husband are unemployed. They decided to grow a vegetable garden which she is making into a business to help out with family needs, especially their children's.

She was facing a lot of problems such as too many weeds and lack of chemicals to kill insects that damaged the vegetables due to financial constraints. She needed financial assistance to improve her vegetable garden's condition in order to maintain her customer orders and therefore joined the SPBD program which she found out about through other village members.

She would like to apply for another loan through SPBD so that she can pay her children's school fees and if there is enough, she would like to make repairs to the back of their house.
