A loan helped to plow their plantation and pay for more workers.


'Emeliana's story

'Emeliana is a 31-year-old mother of two, and a wife of a carpenter. They live at their own home, and their two children currently attend school. Her husband works and provide for the family, but it is never enough. His wages cannot cover the family's expenses. Therefore, 'Emeliana decided to start a business in order to help her husband with their family's needs. She decided to start growing crops a few years back, and even up to now, her business is still running and is growing. Her husband is responsible for their plantation, in maintaining it and taking care of it.

In the plantation, they grow diverse types of crops, and 'Emeliana takes them to the local market for marketing. Her main market day is Saturday. When her business was started, there were no financial support, so she joined the SPBD loan program and she is still joining up to now.

She is hoping to use her loan money to plow their plantation for the next planting season, and also pay some men to help her husband with their plantation. This business of hers covers most of their expenses, including their kids' school fees.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
