Paletina's story

Paletina is a 41-year-old married woman with 4 children. She runs a business of selling taro and bananas in her community to earn a living. She has 4 years of experience with this business.

Paletina works very hard to please her customers with her fresh taro and bananas. She thought she will earn more income if she plants more bananas and taro. In order to do this, Paletina needs a loan to buy taro roots (seedlings), banana tubes (seedlings), chemicals, a 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; only her business will help meet her family's needs. Her dream is that one day her family will have a great living standard.

She became a member of SPBD in 2021 to seek finance for her business. Paletina realized that your support will be a big help for her and her family, to develop her business through financing.
