Sefilina is 41 years old and married with 10 children. She wants to start a small business making and selling german buns, donuts and pork buns in her community. To do this, she needs a loan to buy everything she needs for her business.
In the future, Sefilina hopes to expand her business and save more money for the better future of her family. She joined SPBD this year to gain access to financial services.
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.
