Siuuila F., 54, is married with six children. She has five years of experience in the Plantation business. She sells to the village people and the general public three days per week. She has had three previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 500 Tala. SPBD loans are Siuuila’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. The loan will be used on the business and also to pay for children school fees.
