Seine is 29 years old and married with 2 children. She has a small plantation where she grows taro and bananas that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for 3 years.
Seine needs a loan to purchase fertilizers, a wheel barrow, shovels, and gloves to extend her business. She has been a member of SBPD since 2010. Seine will save the profits from her sales for her family's needs.
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.
