Akenese's story

Akenese is 29 years of age and is married with 3 children. She owns & operates a business venture, catching and selling ocean-caught fish. She has many years of experience in this business. She needs a loan of WST 1,000 to purchase fishing equipment, including hooks & nets. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 400 talas or US $167 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2011, Akenese 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 Akenese 's 1st loan with SPBD.
