Lilieni's story

Lilieni T., 19, is married with one child. She has worked as a vegetable gardener for the last two years, and six days a week sells her produce to the public and the people of her village at the main market in town. She has taken out one previous loan from SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be about $291. SPBD loans are Lilieni’s only access to capital because she has never been able to qualify for a loan from a traditional bank. Part of the loan will be used to expand her house, or for repairs. Her husband helps her operate her business on Friday and Saturday and works at the local gas station from Monday to Thursday.
