She has been doing this for three years. Logo needs a loan to buy planting pots, fertilizer, a rake, a garden hose and gloves. She has been a member of SPBD since 2011. Logo will use the profits from her sales to provide for family’s daily needs.
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.
