Filomega is 31 years old and married, with three children. She owns and operates a small store, selling items such as meats, tinned products, food supplies, and a lot more. She has been doing this for six years.
Filomega needs a loan to buy tinned food, rice, sugar, salt, soy sauce, chicken legs, and snacks. She hopes to use her profits to support her family and children and also to create a better quality of her business.
She became a member of South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) in 2010 to gain access to capital for her business.
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.
