Sunite is a 25-year-old who lives with her partner and four children.
She has a small plantation and grows taros, bananas and yams to earn a living. She has been doing this for more than three years. Sunite has requested a loan to buy chemicals, wheelbarrow, barb wire, backpack sprayer and pickaxe.
She recently joined SPBD in 2013. With her profits, Sunite hopes to help improve her family standard of living and their 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.
