Talaleu is a 45-year-old single woman with two children. She makes and sells BBQ in her community to earn a living. She has two years of experience with this business.
Talaleu needs a loan to buy lamb flaps, chickens, and sausages to provide the best quality of her business. She plans to use her profits to improve her business and provide good financial support for her family. Talaleu has been a member of SPBD since 2009.
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.
