Linda's story

Linda P. is 30 years old and married with four children. She has many years of experience selling groceries. She has a general store in her village, and she sells to the public six days a week. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 700 Tala (~$291 USD).

Linda has benefited from two previous successful SPBD (South Pacific Business Development) loans. SPBD loans are Linda’s only access to capital, because she is not able to qualify for a traditional bank loan. She will use her loan to improve her business status and also to help pay for her kids' school fees. She desires to increase sales so that she may better financially support her family. Her husband also helps out with her business.
