Sesilia's story

Sesilia T., 49, is married with five children. She has two years of experience in the plantation business. She sells to the general public and villagers four days per week. She has had a previous loan with Kiva's partner SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 450 Tala (about $187).

SPBD loans are Sesilia’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 purchase farming equipment, sacks of fertilizers and chemicals for the plantation.
