A loan helped to buy pandanus that she uses for her weaving and also to pay for some labor to help her in her business.

Mataki's story

Mataki is 55 -years-old and married, with four children and five grandchildren. She's currently running her business of weaving. It has been six years now since she started her business. This is her fifth loan cycle from SPBD.

Mataki's loan is very useful for her business. She used it to pay for some laborers to help her in weaving and also to buy some pandanus as her raw materials for her weaving.

She weaves her mats and ta'ovala and sells it to earn her income to help her family for living. She said one of her main challenges is a lack of money to access her business needs such as pandanus, etc.

Mataki's vision for the future of her business is to earn some more income to improve her house.
