Asenati's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy another sewing machine, rolling material, paint color, paint brushes, and a sewing kit.


Asenati's story

Asenati is a 25-year-old married woman with one child.

She runs a small business of elei printing in her community to earn a living. She has five years of experience with this business. She is well known in her community due to her beautiful designs and patterns as well as good customer services. She works very hard to please her customers and gain more profits to help her family’s weekly expenses.

Asenati needs a loan to buy another sewing machine, rolling material, paint color, paint brushes, and a sewing kit. This will assist her to run the business. She plans to use her profit to build a small elei shop to display more of her design.

She joined SPBD in 2014. Asenati's dream is to one day she will have multiple elei shops and more employees to help her run the business. She is very grateful for your support, and she is also encouraging more unemployed women to join the program and build a business to develop their families.
