A loan of $675 helped to buy fertilizers and equipment for her vegetable garden.

Sapela's story

Sapela is 49 years old and is married with four children. She has a small garden where she grows cabbages and cucumbers that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for four years.

Sapela needs a loan to buy fertilizer, insect poison, weed killer, a new wheelbarrow, gloves, new overalls and a machete. She has been a member of SPBD for four years. Sapela will use the profits from her sales to pay for her family's weekly expenses.
