Sina's story

Sina V. is a 37-year-old married woman with three children. Her husband is a driver, which helps to support their family from a financial standpoint. She, meanwhile, has 2 years of experience in the farming business, and she explains that she sells her crops to the public three days per week. On average, her weekly net cash flow is approximately 400 Tala ($166).

Notably, she has already received four previous loans from SPBD. Indeed, SPBD loans are Sina’s only access to capital because she is unable to qualify for any loans via traditional banks. She is now seeking a loan in the amount of $575, all of which will be used to expand and improve her business (e.g., to purchase chemicals and equipment).
