but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Marylyn's story

Marylyn is a 24-year-old woman who is married with four children. She lives in a rural area outside Honiara, the capital city of the Solomon Islands.

She has a small business, selling betel nuts and cigarettes in her community and at the market to earn income. She has skills and experience in this line of business and has been doing it for two years.

Marylyn needs a loan to pay for 4 bags of betel nuts, 5 sleeves of cigarettes, and 5 packets of matches to keep the business going and earn more income to support her family.

She will use her profits to cover her family's expenses, meet her children's school fees, and help provide good living conditions for her family.

Marylyn joined South Pacific Business Development (SBPD) in 2016 to gain access to financial services.
