Breda's story

Breda is 33 years old and she is married with four children; they live in a community outside Honiara, capital of Solomon Island.

She runs a small marketing business selling food items such as rice, noodles, biscuits, donuts and cakes in her community to earn a living. She has been in this business for one year.

Breda has requested a loan to pay for additional rice, canned foods, sugar, biscuits, noodles, flour and cooking oil to increase her supplies 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.
