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

A loan helped to buy pots, food trays, food containers and a cooking stove for her business.

Rebecca's story

Rebecca is a 40-year-old woman who is married with three children, and they live in a community in Honiara, the capital of Solomon Island.

To earn a living, Rebecca runs a small marketing business selling cooked foods such as cooked chicken, rice and cassava in her community and at the market. She has been in this business for two years.

Rebecca has requested a loan to pay for additional pots, food trays, food containers and a cooking stove to assist her with her business. She plans to use her profits to meet her family's weekly expenses and improve her business.

Rebecca joined SPBD in 2019 to gain access to financial services for her business, and this is her first loan.
