Alofagia is a 24-year-old lady with no children. She makes and sells ice cakes in her community to earn a living. She has three years of experience with this business.
Alofagia needs a loan to buy sugar, cordial, foam cups, Chinese lollies and a deep freezer. She plans to use her profits to help her family meet their daily needs and wants. Alofagia joined SPBD in 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.
