A loan helped to purchase retail goods to stock up her shop and bags of flour to produce donuts and increase her income.

Clotin Josline's story

Clotin Josline is 30 years old and happily married. Her husband is unemployed, and they have three children, ages 10, 9 and 5, all of whom are in school. She lives with her husband and children in their own home which is located in a village that is about 20 minutes drive to Port Vila city. Her community is quite large, and the main industry is agriculture and tourism. As COVID-19 has affected the world, Vanuatu tourism has lost a lot of its employment so it can be hard at times to earn a steady income.

Clotin Josline has asked for a loan to help her purchase retail goods which she will use to stock up her shop, and also to purchase a bag of flour which she will use to make donuts to sell to students as schools are about to start early this month of February.

Clotin Josline started her business back in 2018, and her shop and donut business have helped support her family financially. With the revenue earned, she will help her son build his own home and support her husband who wants to start education in a Bible school.

This is Clotin Josline's fourth loan with South Pacific Business Development (Vanuatu) Ltd. She has successfully repaid her previous loans on time. Through her loans, Clotin Josline is empowered to make her business grow, so she can continue to support her family's needs and wants.

This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
