Ruthy Losaline's story

Ruthy Losaline lives in an urban suburb which is the largest residential area in Port Vila city. Her community is large, and the main industry is food. Despite Covid-19 has also affecting Vanuatu, it has been quite alright for one to earn income. Ruthy Losaline is 29 years old who is a single mother of two beautiful children of ages 10 and 5. Both her children are attending the local primary school in her community.

Ruthy Losaline has requested a loan to help her pay for poly pots to plant more of her plants, plain fabric and fabric paints which she will stock up to provide printed fabric for her customers to increase her income. She wants to make her own printed designs and new plants to attract more customers. This will help increase her reveune, which she will use to save up so she can pay for a piece of land for herself and her children to build their own home. Ruthy Losaline learned to grow her flowers and painting through her elder sister. She has now been in her business for over 2 years. Being a single mother is sometimes hard but Ruthy Losaline feels motivated by her children to expand in her business so they can have something for their own.
