Siu's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy some raw materials for her weaving and handicrafts businesses.

Siu's story

Siu is 57 years old and divorced. She is a mother of two children and grandmother to her four grandchildren. They live together in their owned home and there are seven of them in total.

She requested her loan from SPBD and used it to buy raw materials for her weaving and handicrafts businesses, as shown in the photograph. She is self-employed and works alone in weaving and making her crafts. When she finishes making her products, she sells them to her customers and also to different people to earn income for family living expenses and for her loan repayments.

Siu's businesses run very actively. She only faces challenges when she has a lack of materials. She is working hard to reach her vision for the future of her businesses, which is to maintain providing for her little family.
