Eligabeth's story

Eligabeth is a 32-year-old woman who is married with four children and they live in a community in Honiara, capital of Solomon Island.

She runs a small business selling bananas, potatoes, cabbages, and peanuts in her community and at the market to earn a living. She has been doing this for two years. She joined SPBD in 2018 to gain access to financial services.

Eligabeth has requested a loan to pay for bags of bananas, peanuts, cabbages, and guavas to increase her supplies and assist her in maintaining her business.

She hopes to use her profits to meet her family's financial needs.
