Niuia's story

Niuia is 66 years of age and married with seven children. She owns and operates a business selling snacks and cooked food to local communities. She has 2 years of experience in this business. Niuia needs a loan of WST $1500 to purchase additional products to sell. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 400 talas or US $167 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2010, Niuia 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 Niuia's 2nd loan with SPBD.
