A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase more goods to stock the shop.

Logitu's story

Logitu is one of the veteran members in the program. She started with a pancake business, but now has a general store at the front of her house. The shop was financed and planned when she started in the SPBD program. The idea came from her eldest son: He knows that she is not suited for doing any home duties such as grass weeding, so he decided to run a shop, and Logitu is responsible for looking after it.

The shop is open seven days a week, from six o'clock in the morning to ten at night. The maximum profit that she can earn a week is between 500 and 1000 ST (USD180-360). This money is then used to buy goods for the shop, and what is left goes for her savings and the loan payment.
