Me has requested a loan to buy a box of chicken leg quarters, box of mutton flaps (meat from sheep bellies), etc. She joined SPBD to gain access to capital. With her earnings, Me hopes to expand her business within other nearby villages.
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.
