Nora is a 52 year old married with 11 children. She runs a sewing shop in her community and has many years of experience.
Nora has requested a loan to buy a new sewing machine, more material, thread and oil.
She plans to use her profits to improve her business and to support her family financially. She joined SPBD in 2010 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.
