Lesaoai's story

Lesaoai S., 37, is married with five children. She has four years of experience in the plantation business. She sells to the general public six days per week. She has had two previous loans with SPBD, a Kiva partner. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 200 Tala.

SPBD loans are Lesaoai’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks. Part of the loan will be used to purchase sacks of cement and iron roofing for home improvement.
