Ulata is a 57-year-old woman who is married, with seven children. She has a taxi business.
Ulata needs a loan to buy tires, a new battery, a taxi registration, seat covers, and vehicle paint. She will use her profit to support her family and children.
Ulata joined South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) in 2009 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.
