A loan of $1,125 helps to buy supplies for her banana and taro business.


Asiosio's story

Asiosio is 26 years old and has three children. She operates a business selling bananas and taro in her community to earn a living. She has been doing this for more than two years and sells more every day due to the quality of her products and her great customer service.

Asiosio needs a loan to buy items such as banana tubes, taro roots, a wheelbarrow, a water tank and chemicals to assist her in running the business.

She joined SPBD in 2016 and hopes to use her profits to expand the business.


This loan is special because:

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