Mulauvao is a 19-year-old young lady with no children.
Mulauvao would like to start growing taro, taamu (giant taro), yam, and bananas to earn a living. She has requested a loan to buy a backpack sprayer, chemicals, and taro root.
Mulauvao will spend her profits to help support her family financially. She joined SPBD in 2013 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.
