Epenesa's story

Epenesa L., 52, is married with 6 children. She has 3 year experience in the fishing business. She sells to the general public and villagers, 4 days per week. She has made 2 previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 600 Tala (~250 USD). SPBD loans are Epenesa’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Her loan will be used to buy a new canoe to replace the old one, some fishing equipment and a fishing net.
