Uluolegogosina is 52 years old and married with five children. She has a small garden where she grows cabbages and tomatoes that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for one year. Uluolegogosina needs a loan to purchase veggie seeds, chemicals, and farming tools to start a new business.
She has been a member of SBPD since 2012. Uluolegogosina will use the profits from her sales to save in her account for family 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.
