A loan helped to buy rice, flour, and cigarettes for her general store business.


Alice's story

Alice is 40 years old and she is married with three children. They live in a rural community outside Honiara, capital of Solomon Island.

She runs a small general store business selling food items such as rice, noodles, canned foods and flour in her community to earn a living. She has been in this business for four years.

Alice has requested a loan to help her pay for additional rice, flour and cigarettes to increase her stocks and assist her in maintaining her business.

She plans to use her profits to meet her family's weekly expenses and pay for children's school fees.

She became a member of SPBD in 2015 to gain access to financial services.
