A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase additional products to sell.


Viena's story

For three years Viena, a married 48-year-old mother of one child, has owned and operated a small retail shop selling a variety of goods on the island of Salua Manono. Viena is requesting a loan of WST $2500 to purchase additional products to sell. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 400 talas or US $167 per week) to improve/expand her enterprise.



In 2005, Viena joined SPBD to gain access to financial services, and this will be her fifth loan. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks because they lack collateral.
