A loan of $450 helped to purchase baking equipment.


Luisa's story

Luisa is 33 years of age and married with three children. Luisa owns & operates a business venture, baking & selling bread in the local community. She has one year of experience in this business. Luisa needs a loan of WST $1000 to purchase baking equipment. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 250 talas or US $104 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2011, Luisa 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 Luisa's 1st loan with SPBD.
