Delila's story

Delila is a 43-year-old widow with a child living in a rural community outside Honiara, capital of Solomon Island. She's run a small business three years making and selling cakes, donuts and buns in her community and at the market to earn a living.

She's requested a loan to buy flour, cooking oil, sugar, yeast and a food container for her business.

She plans to use her profits to meet her family's expenses and improve her business. Delila joined SPBD this year to gain access to financial services.
