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

A loan helped to buy taro roots (seedlings), banana tube (seedlings), chemicals, a backpack sprayer and a chainsaw.

Saitia's story

Saitia is a 59-year-old, married woman with five children. She runs a business of selling taro and bananas in her community to earn a living. She has four years of experience with this business. Saitia works very hard to please her customers with her fresh taro and bananas.

She thinks she will earn more income if she plants more bananas and taro, but in order to do this, Saitia needs a loan to buy taro roots (seedlings), banana tube (seedlings), chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and a chainsaw to help her run the business.

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

Her dream is that one day, her family will be in great living standards. She became a member of SPBD in 2016 to seek financing for her business.

Saitia realizes that your support will be a big help for her and her family to develop through financing.
