Ramwel Raymonde's story

Ramwel Raymonde is a 58-year-old mother of seven grown-up children. Most of her children have their own families, so she currently lives alone. She lives in a rural suburb which is located about 6 kilometres out of Port Vila city. Ramwel Raymonde's community is very large, and the main industry is agriculture. This industry is what the locals rely on for food and income, so making income has been quite satisfactory.

Ramwel Raymonde has requested a loan to purchase new patterned fabric, plain white fabric, fabric paints and a solar fan to stock up her handicraft room so she can sew garments to earn income. She wants to sew as much as she can, as it is coming to Vanuatu's independence day and a lot of customers would love to dress up for that day. This will help increase her revenue, which she will use to complete her unfinished home. Ramwel Raymonde has been sewing for over 40 years now, and she loves it, loves to be able to learn new tailoring patterns or continue with well-known patterns.

This is Ramwel Raymonde's third loan with South Pacific Business Development (Vanuatu) Ltd. She successfully repaid her previous loans on time. With her love for what she does, Ramwel Raymonde is motivated to continue to grow her business so she can improve her living condition and continue to make her customers smile.
