A loan helped to buy a wheelbarrow, rake, shovel, water tank, more seedlings (taro roots and banana tubes) and gloves.
Siapo is an 18-year-old single woman with no children. She runs a small business selling taro and banana in her village to earn a living. She became a member of SPBD in 2019. Siapo is enjoying being a member of the program and has even encouraged others to join and seek financing to develop their family business.
Siapo requested a loan to buy a wheelbarrow, rake, shovel, water tank, more seedlings (taro roots and banana tubes) and gloves, to help her run the business.
Siapo is very grateful for your support. Her dream is that one day she will export her produce.
This loan is special because:
It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
