Luse is 20 years old and single with no children. She runs a small canteen in her community and has been doing this for two years.
Luse has requested a loan to buy snacks, soft drinks, a small table, tissues, cups and plates.
She joined SPBD this year to gain access to capital. With her earnings, Luse hopes to expand her business within her village.
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.
