Fia's story

Fia is forty-two years of age and is married with five children. Fia owns and operates a business venture, selling baked goods in the local community. She has three years of experience in this business. Fia needs a loan of WST 1,500 to purchase raw ingredients needed to make products for sale. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 350 talas or US $146 per week) to improve/expand the business.

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