Motulalo's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business and also hire more women to help with her weaving in order to weave more products.


Motulalo's story

This is Motulalo. She is 37 years old, mother to three children and a wife to a farmer. Her three children are currently in school, and they live at their own home, in the island of Vava'u.

Her business is weaving, and she is self-employed. She weaves taovala and mats with brown pandanus only. When her products are ready, Motulalo post it on the Internet for more viewers, and she also gains customers from it.

Her weaving is her family's main source of income since 2011. She is planning on using her loan money to buy pandanus for weaving and also hire women to help with her weaving, and weave more mats and taovala.
