Penina's story

Penina is a 29-year-old married woman with two children. She runs a business of selling taro and bananas in her community to earn a living. She has four years of experience with this business.

Penina works very hard to please her customers with her fresh taro and bananas. She thought she would earn more income if she planted more bananas and taro, but in order to do this, Penina needs a loan to buy taro roots (seedlings), banana tubes (seedlings), chemicals, a backpack sprayer, and a chainsaw to help her run the business. She even delivers her products to the flea market by using the bus (transportation).

She comes from a family in which no ones works to earn a living, but only her business will help her family's needs. Her dream is that one day her family will have a great living standard.

She became a member of SPBD in 2016 to seek financing for her business. Penina realizes that your support will be a big help for her and her family to develop through financing.

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