A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase game prizes.

Fetu's story

Fetu, a 64-year-old married mother of six, owns and operates a business venture running bingo games. With four years of experience in this business, Fetu is requesting a loan, her sixth, of WST $2900 to purchase game prizes. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 550 talas or US $229 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2006, Fetu joined SPBD to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks because they lack collateral.
