Peka is 44 years old and married, with seven children.

She wants to start a small business making and selling rice and curry in her community. To do this, she needs a loan to buy a cooking oven, rice, chickens, curry powder, onions, flour, and a tin bowl.

In the future, Peka hopes to improve her business to help her family and her kids' educations. She joined SPBD this year to gain access to financial services.
