Elizaberth is 20 years old, single, and has one child.
She has a small plantation and grows taro and bananas that she sells in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for 2 years.
Elizaberth needs a loan to buy chemicals, a new wheelbarrow, fertilizer, a crowbar, a tiller, and gloves.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2014.
Elizaberth will use the profits from her sales to pay for her family's daily expenses.
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.
