Alofaae is 26 years old and married with three children. She plans to start a business of selling household goods and products. She has requested a loan to buy flours, sugar, salt, soap, washing soaps, laundry powder, snacks, candies, cartons of chicken, cartons of mutton flaps and drinks.
Alofaae will use her profits to improve her business to help with her family matters and with her kids' educations. She has been a member of SPBD since 2012.
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.
