Saili is a 21-year-old single mother with one child. She operates a small shop, selling a variety of goods in her community. She has two years of experience with this business.
Saili has requested a loan to restock her shop with general goods such as freezer stuff like chicken leg quarters, sausages, canned food, sugar, flour, toilet tissues, toothpaste, etc. She plans to use her profits to support her family financially and to be able to help her business needs. She has been a member of SPBD since 2011.
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.
