She is happily married and her husband is her supporter and basically the physical strength in her business for any heavy lifting. She lives with her husband and children in her own home which is located 6 kilometres out of Port Vila city. Moria's community is small and is located along the southern coastline, the main activity is food and services. It has been quite good lately for one to earn an income despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Moria has requested a loan to help her purchase firewood, dry coconut and retail goods which will be stocked in her small retail shop to better provide for her customers and increase her income. She wants to increase her stock to attract more customers. This will help increase her revenue, which she will use to start building home units. Moria started her business back in 1999. She started small and has been slowly increasing it ever since.

Moria has been with South Pacific Business Development (Vanuatu) Ltd for over 3 years now, and this is her fourth loan. She has been dedicated to her previous loan repayments. Through her loans, Moria is motivated to build up her business so she can improve her family's living conditions.
