A loan of $425 helped to purchase a new refrigerator and ice cream.


Galu's story

Galu is twenty-nine years of age and is married with three children.

Galu is starting a business venture selling ice cream in the local community. Galu needs a loan of WST 1000 to purchase a new refrigerator and ice cream. She plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 300 talas or US $125 per week) to improve/expand the business.

Galu 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 Galu's second loan with SPBD.
