Eseta is 35 years old and married with five children. She makes and sells elei materials (hand-printed fabrics) to earn a living and has been doing this for two years.
Eseta has requested a loan to buy brushes, an elei board (for printing fabric), and paint. She plans to use her profits to expand her business. She joined SPBD in 2012 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.
