Veronika Vine's story

Veronika Vine B. is 22 and married with 1 child. She is starting a business venture selling lavalavas (bottom-half wrap-around prints worn by both men and women). She needs a loan of 1000 talas to purchase additional fabrics and materials. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 400 talas or US $162 per week) to improve and expand it. In 2010, Veronika Vine joined SPBD, and this is her 1st loan with them. SPBD's loans are Veronika Vine's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
