Ofu's story

Ofu V., 49, is married with 6 children. She has many years of experience in the grocery business. She sells to the whole district community and relatives, and also tourists as they drive past, 7 days per week. She has 3 previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 400 Tala (~166 USD).

SPBD loans are Ofu’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. The loan will also support her kids at school and her church contribution. Her husband is self-employed and works to maintain the business.
