“I have been working at SPBD for about 7 years. I work as team leader and supervise 4 loan officers who go out to the field and provide service in the community. SPBD provides services – small loans, insurance and savings – to poor women around the country. Most villages are covered by our services, with some villages having 2-3 SPBD centers. Our organization helps women start small businesses to increase their family income and improve their standard of living. Our services also help women fund their children’s education, as well as make improvements to their house or place of living.
Through the WAM NY scholarship, I learned more about other microfinance practices so that I could improve both my personal understanding and our organization’s services.Thank you to WAM NY for this opportunity!”
