Kapeneta's story

Kapeneta is a married mother, who is 52 years old, and has two kids.

Kaneta owns and operates a business venture, raising pigs for sale. She has two years of experience in this business. Kapeneta needs a loan of WST 1500 to purchase baby livestock to raise and sell in the future. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 600 talas or US $250 per week) to improve the general living conditions of her family.

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

*SPBD evaluates the living conditions of each of its borrowers. Generally, a loan manager evaluates a variety of social metrics on a scale out of 3 (the higher the number, the better off the person is) and these are averaged for the "overall social metric score." For example, a 3 out of 3 on "level of education" would mean that the borrower has graduated from university.

About SPBD In 2000, Greg Casagrande founded SPBD to improve the quality of life of people living in poverty in the poor island nations of the South Pacific. SPBD's philosophy of lending is based on a respect for each individual's innate human ingenuity, drive and self esteem.
