Daisy is a 25-year-old single woman with no children. She has a small plantation and grows green beans, green pepper, green onions, round cabbages and pok choi to earn a living. She has been doing this for one year. Daisy has requested a loan to buy fertilizers, snail chemicals, a hose, gloves and a mist blower.
She joined SPBD in 2013. With her profits, Daisy hopes to improve her business to help her family members.
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.
