Aneliueta is a 25-year-old married woman with no children. She has a small plantation and grows taro plants to earn a living. She has been doing this for three years.
Aneliueta has requested a loan to buy chemicals, a wheelbarrow, bush knives, a file, an axe and fertilizer. She has been a member of SPBD since 2011. With her profits, Aneliueta hopes to save more money for her family's needs.
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.
