Sina's story

Sina I. is 43 and married with 5 children. She owns a business venture, planting & harvesting taro for sale. Sina has one year of experience in this business. She needs a loan of 1700 talas to purchase fertilizers such as manure. She plans to use the earnings from her business (estimated to be 600 talas or US $235 per week) to improve/expand the business.

Sina joined SPBD. This is her 4th loan with SPBD. SPBD's loans are Sina's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks.
