Nive's story

Nive S., 41, is married with six children. She has four years of experience in the plantation business. She sells to the village people and the public two days per week. She has had two previous loans with SPBD, a Kiva partner. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 350 Tala (about $145). SPBD loans are Nive’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
