Galulolo is 32 years old and married with six children. She has a small garden where she grows vegetables that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for many years.
Galulolo needs a loan to pay for her children's education and to buy new equipment for her business. She has been a member of SPBD since 2010. Galulolo will use the profits from her sales to provide for her family's daily need.
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.
