She would like to start growing taamu, taro and banana to earn a living.
Utagamamao has requested a loan to buy a wheelbarrow, weed sprayer, spade and bush knives. She has been a member of SPBD for one year.
Utagamamao will spend her profits to buy a truck for her delivery, and to save for her child'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.
