Selina is a 62-year-old woman who is married with three children. She is currently running a taxi business. She has three years with this business. Selina needs a loan to buy new tyres, seat covers, brake pads, and a taxi sign. She will use her profits to pay for her grandchildren's education. Selina joined SPBD to gain access to financial services.
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.
