Derbe's story

Derbe is a 39-year-old woman who is married with four children and they live in a rural community outside Honiara, capital of Solomon Island.

She runs a small business drying wet cocoa beans to sell to local cocoa exporters in town to earn a living. She has been doing this for eight years.

Derbe has requested a new loan to pay for an additional 3500 kilograms of wet cocoa beans 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 grow her business.

She joined SPBD in 2016 to gain access to financial services for her business.
