Lise is 19 years old and single, with no children.
She makes and sells rice and curry in Malie Primary School and in her community to earn a living. She has two years of experience with this business.
Lise needs a loan to buy chicken, curry powder, garlic, onions, seasoning oil, foil, and foam plates. She plans to use her profits to save for family needs.
Lise has been a member of 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.
