Christine's story

Christine is 18 years old and single with no children. She wants to start a small business making and selling curry and rice in her community. To do this, she needs a loan to buy cartons of chicken, bags of rice, onions, flour, a gas oven, curry powder, paper plates, and foam cups. In the future, Christine hopes to earn more profit to improve her business and help with her family matters. She joined SPBD in 2012 to gain access to financial services.
