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

A loan helped to build a vending stall for selling barbecue.

Telesia's story

Telesia and her husband runs a barbecue business in town every day. They have set up a tent near the flea market, where they serve random customers from 10:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. She has five teenage children, all of whom are in high school.

Every day, Telesia and her husband prepare food to serve to their customers. They offer fresh hot meals that include chicken, lamb chops, hot dogs, and cassava at affordable prices. This business was started in 2019 and has been successful ever since. Her dream is to have a stall for selling barbecue in the same location, since a tent can get very hot during the summer and is unsafe on windy days. Since they do not have enough capital, Telesia decided to join SPBD so that she could obtain a loan for building a barbecue vending stall.

A loan to Telesia will encourage her to continue in her work.
