A loan of $1,050 helped purchase chemicals and equipment needed for her plantation business.


Selena's story

Selena P., 48, is married with one child. She has four years of experience in the plantation and fishing businesses. She sells to the village people and general public two days per week. She has had five previous loans with SPBD, Kiva's partner.


She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 380 Tala (about $158). SPBD loans are Selena’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with traditional banks. Some part of the loan will be used to pay her child's school fees and to buy equipment needed for repairing her house.
