Kolreti is a 43 year old married woman with three children. She would like to start growing taro, banana and yam to earn a living. Koreti has requested a loan to get all the equipment needed for her business.
She has been a member of SPBD for two years. Koreti will spend her profits to help with her children's education.
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.
