Agai's story

Agai is a 62-year-old married woman with five children. She runs a business selling taro and banana in her community to earn a living. She has four years of experience with this business. She works very hard to please her customers with her fresh taro and banana. She thought she will earn more income if she plants more banana and taro, but in order to do this, Agai needs a loan to buy taro roots (seedling), banana tube (seedling), chemicals, bag back sprayer,and a chainsaw, to help her run the business.

She even delivered her products to the flea market by using the bus (transportation). She comes from a family in which no one works to earn a living, but only her business will help her family needs.

Her dream is that one day her family will be in a great living standard. She became a member of SPBD in 2016 to seek finance for her business. Agai realizes that your support will be a big help for her and her family to develop through financing.
