Masina is 43 years old and married, with four children.
She runs a small business selling snacks, soft drinks, donuts, long buns, pork cakes, and bbq in her community. She has been doing this for two years.
Masina has requested a loan to buy more snacks, drinks, new frying pans, flour, sugar, chicken, and soya. She joined SPBD in 2011 to gain access to capital.
With her earnings, Masina will use her profits to help her family matters.
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.
