Emy's story

Emy is a 48-year-old mother of four. She is married, lives with her husband and children in a relative's compound. She lives in a rural district near Port Vila city. Her community is very small, and their main industry is agriculture. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it can be difficult at times to earn a steady income.

Emy requested a loan to help her purchase housing materials, which she will use to complete her unfinished home unit. She wants to provide affordable yet comfortable home units to her customers. Emy started her business back in 2018. With the revenue earned, she will use it to expand her business while paying for her children's education.

This is Emy's fourth loan with South Pacific Business Development (Vanuatu) Ltd. She has been faithful to repay her previous loans. Through her loans, Emy feels motivated to become a successful entrepreneur.
