but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Apeuta's story

Apeuta is 52 years old and married with three children. She owns and operates a small store where she sells items such as sugar, flour, rice, soft drinks and other basics. She has been doing this for more than 10 years, and is requesting a loan to buy additional items to sell. She hopes to use her profits to expand her store and save for emergencies. She became a member of SPBD in 2011 to gain access to capital for her business.
