SPBD Microfinance Ltd (Fiji)

Following on the success of its operations in Samoa and Tonga, SPBD Microfinance Limited (Fiji) Ltd. was launched in November 2010 to make available the benefits of microfinance to the low-income and disadvantaged women of the Fiji Islands who constitute 35% of the population. With over 2,200 clients and a loan portfolio of FJ$1,200,000 (approx. US$600,000), SPBD has already become the largest MFI in Fiji. Over the next five years, SPBD expects to be able to serve cumulatively at least 22,000 women and their respective households by providing them unsecured loans (for business, home improvement, and education) with very affordable interest rates, training, savings and insurance facilities. It is the aim of the company that these clients are able to improve their earnings capacities, develop leadership qualities and skills in managing their businesses and finances so that they can have a better quality of life

Cambodia Loan Repayments
Most loans in Cambodia are repaid in a single final installment. In this case, you will receive only one repayment notification instead of monthly updates. This is because many of TPC's clients are farmers and are only able to repay their loan after they have sold their seasonal harvest.
