In order to do this, Antonina needs a loan to buy all the necessary items for her new business. She hopes to use her profits to expand her business. She has been a member of SPBD since 2013.
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.
