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

A loan helped to buy rolls of fabric and dyes for her clothing business.

Bernadeth's story

Bernadeth is 35 years old, married, and the mother of five children. She and her family live in a rural community outside Honiara, the capital of Solomon Island. She wants to earn a living by starting a business making and selling dyed clothing to the people in her community. Bernadeth has requested a loan to pay for the rolls of fabric and the cloth dyes she needs to start her business. She plans to use her profits to meet her family's financial needs. She joined SPBD earlier this year to gain access to financial services for her business and this is her first loan request.
