Uanona is 25 years old, married, and has two children. She runs a small business selling food products from a food stall. She has three years of experience with this business.
Uanona would like this loan of 1500 Tala (WST) to help her buy ingredients to make her goods. She will use the profits from her sales to improve and expand her business and support her family. This is her third loan with SPBD.
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.
