Tupe is a 22-year-old married woman with one child.
She would like to start growing cabbages, carrots, and tomatoes to earn a living. Tupe has requested a loan to purchase cabbage, cucumber, and tomato seeds, and a rake, shovel, and gloves.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2012. Tupe will spend her profits to improve her business in the future.
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.
