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

A loan helped to buy seedlings, hoes, knives, wheelbarrows, spades and fertilizers for her farming activities.

Emilyn's story

Emilyn is a 33-year-old woman, married, and has three children. She lives with her family in a rural community outside Honiara, capital of Solomon Island.

She has a garden where she grows cassava, potatoes and melons that she can sell at the market to earn a living. She has been in this business for one year.

Emilyn has requested this loan to help her pay for additional seedlings, hoes, knives, wheelbarrows, spades and fertilizer for her farming activities.

She plans to use her profits to meet her family's weekly expenses.

She joined SPBD in 2018 to gain access to financial services for her business and this is her first loan.
