Salote has 3 previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 300 Tala (about US$ 125). SPBD loans are Salote’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks.

Her husband used to be a successful businessman and he originally started the business. Her kids help her with a lot of the hard work. Her children who live overseas also send money and supplies for the business.
