Dallas is 25 years old, single with no children. She has a small bingo business, which she has been running for one year. Dallas needs a loan to buy a new bingo machine, bingo paper, a desk, and a chair. She will use her profits to improve her business. Dallas joined SPBD in 2013 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.
