A loan helped to purchase chicken feed for her chickens and retail goods to stock up her small kitchen shop to increase her income.

Betty's story

Betty lives in a rural district which is located just a ten minute drive to the capital city of Vanuatu, Port Vila. Her community is large, and the main industry is agriculture and food. Betty is 40 years of age and a mother of five. Her children are of ages 16, 13, 11, 6 and 4. She lives with her family on leased land in a shanty house.

Betty has requested a loan to help her pay for chicken feed, to better provide for her chicken layers so they can produce more eggs, and also retail goods to stock up her small kitchen shop. This will help increase her income. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been quite satisfactory for one to make an earning, as locals rely a lot on local food.

Betty has been in her business for over a year now, and always has her husband around to help. With her earned revenue, she will save up so she can pay for a piece of land and build her family their own home.

Betty has been with SPBD - Vanuatu for over a year now, and this is her second loan. Her first loan was repaid fully and on time. From her loans, Betty feels motivated to expand her business to improve her family's living conditions.
