When the people are good, the sales are high. When the people are good, the money is good. These are the thoughts of Naomi M., an elei printing businesswoman. Because Naomi has six children in school and a husband to provide for, she sells her products from Monday to Saturday at the Permanent Block she has at the Flea Market. Many people fret but she doesn’t because she says, the sales are quite outstanding. She thanks S.P.B.D. for the loan because it has helped her business grow rapidly.
