Tumema's story

Tumema is 41 years of age and is married with 7 children.

Tumema owns and operates a business venture, planting and harvesting fruits and vegetables for sale. She has 1 year of experience in this business. Tumema needs a loan of 1,000 WST to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 250 talas or US $104 per week) to improve/expand the business.

In 2011, Tumema 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 Tumema's first loan with SPBD.
