Ivoga never gives up. Even though she is divorced from her husband, she still fights for the betterment of her kids' future. She has sacrificed her life for her kava plantation because it’s the only source of income for her family now that her man has left her with the kids. She is still fighting to continue with this plantation, and she will use the financial support from S.P.B.D. to pay the laborers for their hard work at the plantation. She would like this loan so that she can continue to operate this business and produce income for her poor kids.
South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) improves conditions for families living in poverty by providing accessible credit, training, and guidance to help them start, grow and maintain micro-businesses, build assets, finance home improvements, and afford to educate their children. 99% of SPBD’s loans go to women, who can borrow in groups to guarantee one another rather than put up collateral.
