Tupou's story

Tupou is 28 years old. She is a single mother of a son and the sole provider for him. She and her child live together with her parents.

Tupou runs a handicraft business where she makes kiekie (aTongan dress), waist strings and other products from materials such as coconut husk, coconut shells and hibiscus. She has been running this business for four years and has witnessed the greater good that she receives from it. She sells her products at the local market and also from her home.

Tupou is hoping to use her loan money to buy more materials for her business. Her vision is for her son to have a better life in the future and for her business to keep on growing.
