Taueu is a 62-year-old married woman with five children.
She has a big plantation and she grows taro, taamu, yams and bananas to earn a living. She has been doing this for more than four years.
Taueu has requested a loan to buy chemicals, bush knives, rakes, and weed killer for growing her crops. She has been a member of SBPD since 2009.
With her profits, Taueu hopes to extend her business to support her family as well as her children's future 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.
