Emi is a 64 year old married woman with 13 children. She has a small vegetable garden to earn a living and she has been doing this for many years.
Emi has requested this loan to buy vegetable seeds, chemicals, weed sprayer, gloves, and a rake. She has been a member of SPBD since 2012. With her profits, Emi hopes to develop her business to exceed her expectations.
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.
