Louena's story

Louena is twenty one years of age and is married and has no children. Louena owns & operates a business venture, selling fried foods in the local community. She has 1 year of experience in this business. Louena needs a loan of WST 1,000 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 the business.

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