Violetsonnia is 25 years old and married with three children.
She has a small garden where she grows cabbages, tomatoes, and cucumbers that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for five years. Violetsonnia needs a loan to buy vegetable seeds, a rake, gloves and a spade for her garden.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2012. Violetsonnia will use the profits from her sales to improve her vegetable garden business.
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.
