Peaulele is 45 years old and married with five children. She would like to start a small business, selling 'elei' (block printed) materials. In order to do this, Peaulele needs a loan to buy more equipment like paints, clothing materials, spray, a roller, a sketch board, etc. for her business. She hopes to use her profits to extend her business.
