Laumoli is a 57-year-old woman who is married with four children.
She runs a business selling different handicrafts and souvenir products at the market. She has two years of experience with this business.
Laumoli has requested a loan to buy kava bowls, war weapons, sinnet (rope), bangles, elei (fabric printing) materials, and earrings.
She plans to use her profits to provide financial support to her family and kids. She 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.
