Aneliueta is a 24-year-old single woman with no children. She would like to start growing cabbages, tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots to earn a living. Aneliueta has requested a loan to buy vegetable seeds, including cucumber and cabbage, as well as a rake, fertilizer and a wheelbarrow.
She has been a member of SPBD for 2 years. Aneliueta will use her profit for home improvement.
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.
