Logo is 49 years old and married with four children. She has a small garden where she grows vegetables such as cabbage, tomatoes, and beans that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for two years. Logo needs a loan to buy chemicals, bush knives, a wheelbarrow and spades. She joined SPBD this year to gain access to capital. Logo will use the profits from her sales to save for her children's education.
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.
