Annie Bot's story
Annie Bot is a 52-year-old mother of five, four of whom are grown up. Her youngest is still in college. She is happily married to a security guard for a Chinese company. She lives with her husband and children in their own home which is located just five minutes drive to Port Vila's international airport. Her community is small, and the main industry is kava and food. When Covid-19 struck the world, it was hard but it has become quite alright for the past few months for one to earn an income as the locals are supporting each other. Annie Bot has requested a loan to purchase baking ingredients which she needs to bake delicious donuts, raw materials and food ingredients to cook delicious meals for an affordable price for her valuable customers. She has been baking and cooking for the past four years. Her business has helped support her family financially. With the revenue she will earn, she will use to pay for her child's school fees so her child can have a better education to get a well paid job. Annie Bot has been with South Pacific Business Development (Vanuatu) Ltd for over a year now, and this is her second loan. She has been faithful in her first loan repayment. Through her loans, Annie Bot is motivated to make her business grow to enable financial stability in her family.
