Elisa's story

Elisa is 46 years old, married, and has four adult children. She lives in the town of Papa Puleia. To make a living, Elisa raises crops. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from planting and harvesting fruits and vegetables to sell. Elisa has been engaged in this business for over two years and earns approximately 800 WST a month.

In 2011, Elisa joined SPBD to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Elisa is requesting her first loan for 1,000 WST, which she will use to purchase general farm supplies and equipment. Elisa plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve and expand her business.
