Elizaberth's story

Elizaberth is a 30-year-old woman who is married with two children and they live in a community in Honiara, the capital of Solomon Islands.

She runs a small general store business selling food items such as rice, noodles, biscuits and canned foods in her community to earn a living. She has been in this business for two years.

Elizaberth has requested a loan to pay for additional rice, sugar, canned foods, biscuits and noodles to increase her stocks and assist her in running her business.

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

She joined SPBD in 2019 to gain access to financial services for her business.
