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

A loan helped to buy a second hand vehicle and barbed wire.

Lesina's story

Lesina is 47 years old and married with 3 children. She has a vegetable garden where she grows cabbages, tomatoes, eggplant and pumpkins that she can sell in her community or at the market. To earn extra income, she also has a plantation and grows taro, bananas and yams. She has been doing this for many years. Lesina needs a loan to buy a second-hand vehicle to deliver her agricultural goods to the market and to buy barbed wire. She has been a member of SPBD since 2004. Lesina will use the profits from her sales to help upgrade her family's standard of living.
