A loan of $650 helped purchase ingredients for ice cake.


Ela's story

Ela is married with 4 children. She started with a small business making ice cake and selling the local school before she joined SPBD. She still needed capital to increase her supply of ice cake daily because of the high demand for her product. She joined SPBD program in 2005. Ela has not only been able to supply her services to the community but she has also managed to open a grocery store for her family and their village people.



She is now on her 4th loan of $600 which she’s used to buy more stock for her store and do an extension on her house. She can sell more to satisfy her customer savings than coming all the way in to town to shop for their needs. Her family has more space and room in their house for relaxing and doing leisure activities. Ela is making a clear profit of $50 weekly other all expenses.
