Ana is 53 years old and married, with six children. She runs a small business selling donuts and biscuits in her community and has been doing this for many years.
Ana has requested a loan to get goods needed for her business to make it big and make the best for her community. She joined South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) in 2011 to gain access to capital. With her earnings, Ana will save to help with 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.
