Victoria is 24 years old and single. She has two children.
She sews and sell clothes. In order to do this, Victoria needs a loan to buy a sewing machine, scissors, thread, needles, etc. She hopes to save her profits for unexpected needs and for her children's education. She has been a member of SPBD since 2012.
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.
