A loan of $700 helped to purchase sacks of flour and sugar, baking powder, and flavouring.


Iemaima's story

Iemaima, a 36-year-old married mother of two children, owns and operates a business venture selling baked goods in the local community. With two years of experience in this business, she is requesting a loan of WST $1500 to purchase sacks of flour and sugar, baking powder, and flavouring. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 190 talas or US $79 per week) to make improvements to her house.



In 2009, Iemaima 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 Iemaima's second loan with SPBD.
