Heilala's story

Heilala is 28 years old and married with only one child. They live together in their own home. There are eight of them who live in the house together. She has run her business of weaving for several years. This is her fourth loan from SPBD.

Heilala is self-employed. She weaves at her home with her two sisters. They weave mats. Her husband helps her in her business. When she finishes weaving, she sells her mats in a market to earn some income to help her business, and also to help her family's living and her loan payment.

Heilala confidently works hard in her business to earn more income to help achieve her dream of improving their home for the safety of her family.
