Elsie's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy rice, canned foods, biscuits, sugar, and tea for her general store.

Elsie's story

Elsie is a 28-year-old woman who is a single mother of one child and they live in a rural community outside Honiara, capital of Solomon Islands.

She runs a small general store, selling food items, such as rice, noodles, biscuits, and canned foods, in her community to earn a living. She has been in this business for two years.

Elsie has requested a loan to pay for additional rice, canned foods, biscuits, sugar, and tea to increase her stock 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.
