Tima's story

Tima P., 47, is married with 4 children. She has 3 years' experience in the taro and banana business. She sells to the village community and Fugalei market 3 days per week. She has previous loans with SPBD.

Tima expects her weekly net cash flow to be 250 Tala (about US$ 104). SPBD loans are Tima’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. She used to support her kids at school by paying for their school expenses for second term and also for home improvement. Her husband helped her in running their business and that is by planning everything for the betterment of their project.
