SPBD is a network of microfinance organizations working in Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and the Solomon Islands dedicated to eradicating poverty by empowering women in poor rural villages with the opportunity to start, grow and maintain sustainable, income generating micro-enterprises.

SPBD Mission & Vision


South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) improves the quality of life of families living in poverty by providing unsecured credit, training, and ongoing motivation and guidance to help them start, grow and maintain micro-businesses, build assets, as well as, finance home improvements and childhood education.


Our vision is to create a network of micro-enterprise development organizations in the South-Pacific and neighboring regions to empower women through financial access and economic development to help lift themselves and their families permanently out of poverty and improve self-esteem.
