Usuia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy taro root seedlings, banana tube seedlings, chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and a chainsaw.
Usuia is a 42-year-old married woman with eight children. She runs a business of selling taro and bananas in her community to earn a living. She has four years of experience with this business. Usuia works very hard to please her customers with her fresh taro and bananas. She thought she would earn more income if she plants more bananas and taro, but in order to do this, Usuia needs a loan to buy taro roots seedlings, banana tube seedlings, chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and chainsaw. To help her run the business, she even delivers her products to the flea market by using the bus. She comes from a family in which no one works to earn a living, so only her business will help her family's needs. Her dream is that one day her family will have a great standard of living. She became a member of SPBD in 2016 to seek financing for her business. Usuia realizes that your support will be a big help for her and her family to develop through financing.
