Fali does not want to waste any working day of the week. From Monday to Friday, she spends and manages her time well. She goes out to fish and then sells her seafood on the roadside. The income of two hundred tala daily makes it possible for her to put her children in school, pay for family obligations, and repay her debts to SPBD.
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.
