Salome's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops.
Salome is fifty years of age and is married with 7 children. Salome owns and operates a business venture, which involves planting and harvesting kava plants for sale. She has 4 years of experience in this business. Salome needs a loan of WST 1,500 (Talas) to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 500 Talas or US $208 per week) to improve/expand the business. Salome joined SPBD to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks because they lack collateral. This is Salome's 2nd loan with SPBD.
