Moamoa is 40 years old and married with six children. She has a small garden where she grows cabbage, tomato, and cucumber that she sells in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for four years. Moamoa needs a loan to purchase a knife, cabbage seed, cucumber seed, weed killer, and a wheelbarrow improve her business.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2009. Moamoa will use the profits from her sales to help her children's education.
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.
