Potofou is a 50 year old married woman with one child.
She is running a livestock business (pigs) to earn a living. Potofou has requested a loan to buy barbed wire, nails, pipes and to pay for labour for building her (livestock shelter) pig sty.
She has been a member of SPBD since 2005. Potofou will use her profits to support her family.
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.
