Sabrina is 23 years old and single with no children. She runs a small business selling cooked food in her community and has been doing this for many years. Sabrina has requested a loan to buy boxes of chicken, sausage, rice, curry, soy sauce, onions, large containers, foil, and foam plates. She joined SPBD in 2013 to gain access to capital. With her earnings, Sabrina will help support her family's everyday needs and improve her business.
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.
