Elenoa is 28 years old and married with no children. She owns and operates a business venture, Elei. She has two years of experience in this line of business. Elena needs a loan to buy materials, fabric paints, a stencil, an 'elei' carved board, and a paint roller. She hopes to use her profits to provide for family daily needs. She joined SPBD in 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.
