Adelaide's story

Adelaide is 22 years of age and married with one child. She is starting a business venture planting and harvesting bananas for sale. Adelaide needs a loan of WST $1000 to purchase general farm supplies and equipment such as a wheel-barrow, knives, spade, and shovel. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 150 talas or US $63 per week) to supplement her family's income.

In 2011, Adelaide joined SPBD to gain access to financial services. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks, because they lack collateral. This is Adelaide's first loan with SPBD.
