Feagai is 65 years old and married with nine children. She has a small taxi business providing transportation to the public. She has been doing this for five years. Feagai needs a loan to buy a cover for her steering wheel, clutch, hand brakes, and more tires, as well as, floor mats for the taxi. She has been a member of SPBD since 2009 to gain access to financial stability. Feagai will use the profits from her sales to improve her family assets.
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.
