Gaulua is 54 years old and divorced with one child.

She has a small farm where she raises cattle that she can sell in her community or to the public. She has been doing this for seven years.

She needs a loan to buy barbed wire, timber, nails, iron poles, cattle food and a new wooden tub for water. She has been a member of SPBD since 2010. Gaulua will use the profits from her sales to pay for her family’s weekly expenses. 

This loan is special because:

Its goal is to reach financially excluded and underserved people.
