Tulaga is a 50-year-old married woman with eight children. She has a small garden where she grows cabbages, beans, eggplants and tomatoes that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for two years.
Tulaga needs a loan to buy tools such as rakes, bush knives etc. to help her in her business.
She has been a member of SBPD since 2013. Tulaga will use the profits from her sales to improve her business and support 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.
