Fuamoli is 39 years old and married with three children. She runs a small business selling barbecue in her community and has been doing this for two years. Fuamoli has requested a loan to buy a box of mutton flaps, chicken, sausages, foam plates, aluminum foil, soy sauce, onion, garlic, tomato sauce and gas. She joined SPBD in 2011 to gain access to capital. With her earnings, Fuamoli will save for her children's education.
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.
