Vaimaila's story

Vaimaila T., 55 and married with five children, has many years of experience in the fish business, selling to the village and general public four days per week while her husband and two boys do the actual fishing. She has received two previous loans with SPBD, her only access to capital because she has never been able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks.



Vaimaila expects her weekly net cash flow to soon rise to $208, and she plans to use both her earningss and the loan she is currently requesting to improve her business and help out the family through some home improvements.
