Fuarosa, age 37, sells German-style buns in her community to earn a living. She has been engaged in this business for four years. She and her husband have two children.
Fuarosa joined SPBD to gain access to capital, and she has requested a loan in order to buy coconuts, flour, sugar, cooking oil, and a frying pan.
With her earnings, Fuarosa will help to support her family's weekly expenses.
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.
