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

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

Tae's story

This is Tae. She is 32 years old and married. She and her husband have four children to raise. Her husband works as a farmer.

Tae runs a business of weaving, where she weaves on her own, at her own home. She weaves mainly taovala and mats, but with white pandanus only. This is due to the reason that weaving using white pandanus is much easier because it is softer than the brown pandanus. Tae sells her products to her sisters overseas.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy more pandanus and weave more taovala and mats. Her first priority is for her children's school fees to be paid, and just one taovala will solve that issue.
