Volau's story

Volau is 25 years old. She's still single and applied for her loan as her second loan cycle. She used her loan to buy some different products for her business of making handicrafts, which she sells at the market to earn income. She makes kiekie using coconut husks, as they appear in the photograph.

She is self-employed; no one helps her in her business. Some of her friends in her village help her when she has loads of orders from her customers. Volau earns her income and helps her little siblings who are living together at their home. Her mother passed away and they live with just their father.

She's working hard in her business to achieve her vision. She wishes to buy a new vehicle to help deliver her business to town. She's planning to sell kiekie every week to increase her income, to achieve her vision in the future.
