Motusia is a 22 year old and single young woman with no children. She has a small garden where she grows cabbages, tomatoes, cucumbers and egg plants that she can sell in her community or at the market. She has been doing this for two years. Motusia needs a loan to buy rakes, bush knives, chemicals, seeds and a wheel-barrow. She has been a member of SBPD since 2012. Motusia will use the profits from her sales to improve her business and 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.
