but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Penelope's story

Penelope is a 40-year-old mother with 2 children. She runs a business selling vegetables, cabbage and cucumber, in her community to earn a living. She has 3 years of experience with this business. Penelope is a Samoan citizen. She works very hard to satisfy her customers with her fresh vegetables. Every day except for Saturday and Sunday she delivers her vegetables to villages using a wheelbarrow. She also believes that using a wheelbarrow in the meantime to deliver her business is also making her strong, happy and healthy. Penelope needs a loan to purchase more equipment: a water tank, chemicals, vegetable seeds, soil, and a rake, to help take her business to the next level. Her dream is that one day she will earn more to buy her own vehicle to help her run the business and send her children to school. She became a member of SPBD in 2019.
