Maria's story

Maria F., 32, is married with 6 children. She has 2 years of experience in a vegetable garden business. She sells to the village people and the general public 3 days per week. She has 1 previous loan with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 400 Tala (approximately $166 USD).

SPBD loans are Maria’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 farming equipment, iron roofing for home improvement, and school uniforms for her children.
