Tomua's story

Tomua is 48 years of age. She is married and has six children. Tomua owns & operates a business of planting & harvesting a variety of vegetables for sale. She has 3 years of experience in this business. Tomua needs a loan of WST $1500 to purchase additional seeds, seedlings & young crops to raise. She plans to use the profits from her business (estimated to be 300 talas or US $125 per week) to improve and expand the business.

Tomua 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 Tomua's 2nd loan with SPBD.
