Nuulopa is a 42-year-old married woman with 11 children. She has a small plantation and grows taro, yam and banana to earn a living. She has been doing this for four years.
Nuulopa has requested a loan to buy a wheelbarrow, a back bag sprayer, chemicals and bush knives.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2011. With her profits, Nuulopa hopes to save more money for 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.
