Siatua is a 23 year old single woman, with one child.
She makes and sells pancakes in her community to earn a living. She has five years of experience with this business. Siatua needs a loan to buy a new frying pan and other ingredients for the business.
She plans to use her profits to help her child's education and family needs. Siatua has been a member of SPBD since 2010.
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.
