Iuni is a 35-year-old, married woman with five children. She would like to start growing taro crops (e.g., yams, bananas) to earn a living.
Iuni has requested a loan to get all equipment needed for her business. She has been a member of South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) for two years. Iuni will spend her profits to help with her children's education and to support her family's daily needs.
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.
