A loan of $675 helped to purchase sugar, plastic foam cups and cordial.


Julie's story

Julie is 34 years of age and married with 4 children.

For the past 2 years, Julie has owned and operated a business selling soft drinks in the local community. She needs a loan of WST 1,500 to purchase sugar, plastic foam cups and cordial. Julie plans to use the profit from her business (estimated to be 350 talas or US $146 per week) to pay for her children's tuition fees.

In 2011, Julie 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 Julie's 2nd loan with SPBD.
