She needs a loan to buy a new display fridge, a chest freezer, snacks, frozen goods, canned food, a sack of onions, and potatoes. She hopes to use her profits to pay for her family's weekly expenses and to extend her shop. She also hopes to save to buy a vehicle to help with her shop. Asoese rejoined SPBD in 2021 to gain access to capital for her business.
