Rebecca's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy food items such as biscuits, sugar, and bales of rice for her small general store.
Rebecca is 35 years old and married with one child. She lives in a rural community outside of Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands. She operates a small general store selling a variety of food items such as rice, noodles, biscuits, sugar, and canned food. She has been doing this for almost five years. Rebecca requested a loan to buy food items to help assist her in running the business. She plans to use her profit to help cover her family's daily expenses and also provide a better living for her family in the future. She joined SPBD in 2013 to gain access to financial services.
