Etevise's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase additional fabrics and materials.
Etevise I. is 25 and married with 1 child. She owns a business venture selling lavalavas (bottom-half wrap-around prints worn by both men and women). She has 2 years of experience in this business, and needs a loan of 1000 talas to purchase additional fabrics and materials. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 300 talas or US $125 per week) to improve and expand it. In 2010, Etevise joined SPBD, and this is her 1st loan with them. SPBD's loans are Etevise's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
