Vaisaulu is a 41-year-old married woman with four children.
She has a small vegetable garden and grows cabbages, spring onions, tomatoes, and green peppers to earn a living. She has been doing this for one year.
Vaisaulu has requested a loan to buy vegetable seeds, fertilizer, chemicals, a new water hose, and a wheelbarrow.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2014. With her profits, Vaisaulu hopes to pay for her children's education.
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.
