Virginia's story

Virginia is a teacher by profession. She teaches in Tamawi Maprik, Wewak East Sepik Province. In addition to her salary, she generates income from a small informal sales business. At a market in town, she sells sundry items, clothes, and blouses that she sews herself. She also buys gold to sell, but she had to cut back due to COVID restrictions on travel to the city of Vanimo where she usually makes her purchases. Seeing that more people are in the business of selling cacao, which brings in a lot revenue into her small town, Virginia decided to seek a loan to buy cacao beans, as well as some materials for her sewing business.
