Leinearu's story

Leinearu lives in a rural district which is located on the northern side of Efate island. Her community is quite large, and the main industry is agriculture. As COVID-19 has also affected Vanuatu, it has been tricky at times to earn a steady income. Leinearu is a 46-year-old mother of three. Her children are aged 18, 13 and 9. She has been a single mother for several years now. She lives with her children in their own shanty home.

Leinearu has asked for a loan to purchase plain t-shirts and fabric paints so she can produce stylish t-shirts for her valuable customers. She wants to paint different kinds of patterns on her t-shirts so it will attract more customers. With the revenue she earns, she will build a better home for her family while paying for her children's education. Leinearu dreams of expanding her business to become one of the largest fabric painting suppliers in her community. Through her loan, Leinearu desires to make her business grow, to gain income and to improve her family's living conditions.
