Vaimoso is 29 years old and single with no children. She makes and sells elei (traditional printed fabric) to earn a living. She has been doing this for five years.
Vaimoso has requested a loan to buy stencils, materials, paints, brushes and a wooden board design for her printing. She plans to use her profits to provide for her family everyday needs. She joined SPBD in 2012 to gain access to financial services.
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.
