Kamila is 23 years old and single, with three children. She has a small vegetable garden where she grows and sell fruits and vegetables in her community or at the market.
Kamila needs a loan to buy a new wheelbarrow, a shovel, fertilizer, weed-killer spray, seedlings, and gardening gloves. She is a new member of South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) in 2012 and she joined to gain access to financial stability. Kamila hopes to use her earnings to improve her family's assets.
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.
