Meresiana's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy big rolls of colored and plain dried pandanus leaves.

Meresiana's story

Weaving is a skill that is scarcely found since many use furniture and tables in their homes.

Meresiana (62) is keeping the talent of weaving that has been passed from one generation to one another, and she has also provided services to many who want her products from weaving such as mats, baskets, hand fans and bags.

These products are made from pandanus leaves and can be used to decorate homes, given out for souvenirs or gifts and also can be used both in weddings and funerals.

She is requesting a loan to buy all the raw materials to assist in weaving that will also make her work much more efficient.
