A loan of $450 helped to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise.


Simoa's story

Simoa is 37 years of age and married with 5 children.

For the past 2 years, Simoa has owned and operated a business, planting and harvesting a variety of vegetables for sale. She needs a loan of WST 1,000 to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise. Simoa 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, Simoa 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 Simoa's 2nd loan with SPBD.
