Whitney is 36 years old and married, with one child.
She owns and operates a business venture, dress-making. She has many years of experience in this line of business.
Whitney needs a loan to purchase a sewing machine, needles, threads, and materials for her business. She hopes to use her profits to help her family's needs. She joined SPBD this year.
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.
