Lituina is a 24-year-old single woman with three children. She makes and sells BBQ in her community to earn a living. She has one year of experience with this business.
Lituina needs a loan to buy boxes of chicken, sausages, mutton flaps, soy sauce, foil, onions, tomato sauce and foam plates for her business. She plans to use her profits to enlarge her business and meet her family's daily needs and wants. Lituina has been a member of SPBD since 2013.
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.
