Ulata is a 56-year-old woman who is married with eight children. For three years, she has been running a business providing taxi services in her community.
Ulata has requested a loan to purchase spare parts. She plans to use her profits to provide financial support for her family. She has been a member of SPBD since 2010.
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.
