Sisi is 71 years old, and is a widow with ten children. She owns and operates a business selling clothes. She has three years of experience in this line of business.
Sisi needs a loan to buy scissors, needles, materials, thread, and to renovate her house. She hopes to use her profits to save for her children's education. She joined SPBD in 2010.
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.
