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

A loan helped to buy more pandanus for her weaving business.

Fisi'ilose's story

Fisi'ilose is a 23-year-old single lady from the Western area of Tongatapu. She lives with her parents and other siblings in their own home.

Her business is weaving, and she does it together with the help of her mother and sister. They conduct the weaving at their own home.

The weaving runs every day, enabling them to finish up more products in a faster time. They weave and decorate mats and ta'ovala of different kinds, then advertise them through the internet and at the local market.

Fisi'ilose runs her business and helps her parents finance their living and her younger siblings' school fees.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy more pandanus for her weaving so she could weave more products and earn more money to help with the renovating of their house.

Shown in her photo behind her is the true picture of their house. It needs to be renovated, for there are 10 members of them altogether who reside in the same house while it is not in good terms.
