Iemaima is a 39-year-old woman who is married with three children. She has four years of experience in her small DJ system business.
Iemaima needs a loan to buy speakers, a set of CDs, a new amplifier system, and a set of system wiring. She will use her profits to improve her business and to help support her children's education. Iemaima joined SPBD in 2010 to gain access to financial services.
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.
