Ruth Nipina's story

Ruth Nipina lives in an urban district which is located just 5 minutes drive to Port Vila's international airport. Her community is large, and the main industry is food and agriculture. Ni-Vanuatu rely a lot on agriculture for food and income, so making an income has been quite satisfactory in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic. Ruth Nipina is 34 years old, is married, and has two lovely children of ages 16 and 9. She lives with her husband in their own home while her children are back in the home village with their grandparents.

Ruth Nipina has requested a loan to pay for retail goods to stock up her shop and increase her income. She wants to increase her stock so that she can provide for her customers' demands. With the revenue earned, she will pay for her children's school fees so they can get an adequate education and get a high-paying job. Ruth Nipina started her business back in 2020, and it has supported her family financially. South Pacific Business Development (Vanuatu) Ltd has supported Ruth Nipina for over a year now, and this is her second loan. She successfully repaid her first loan on time. Through her loans, Ruth Nipina feels motivated to expand her business and become a successful businesswoman.
