Hellen's story

Hellen is 40 years old and she is married with four children. She lives with her family in a rural community outside Honiara, capital of Solomon Islands. She runs a small fuel business selling petrol and oil in her community to earn a living. She has been in this business for two years.

Hellen has requested a loan to pay for additional drums of petrol, pumps, and oil to increase her stocks and assist her in running her business. She plans to use her profits to meet her family's expenses and help pay for her children's school fees.

She joined SPBD in 2016 to gain access to financial services for her business.
