A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase taro tubers, weed killer, pesticides, chemicals, a shovel, bush knives and barred wrire for her taro and banana business.


Siloma's story

Siloma S., 38 years old, is married with six children. She has many years of experience in the taro and banana business. She sells to the villagers and other customers about two days per week. She has already had a number of other successful loan(s) with SPBD.

She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 400 Tala (approximately 166 USD). SPBD loans are Siloma's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks. Siloma's husband is fully engaged with the business and helps out where he can.
