A loan of $650 helped to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise.


Poima's story

Poima is 28 years of age and married with two children. Poima owns and operates a business venture planting and harvesting a variety of vegetables for sale. She has many years of experience in this business.

Poima needs a loan of 1,500 tala to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 500 tala or US $208 per week) to make improvements to her house.

In 2010, Poima 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 Poima's second loan with SPBD.
