A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Kelela's story

Kelela is 47 years old. She has only one son and her husband is a carpenter. They live in their own home. Her son joins his father in his carpentry work.

Kelela runs a business of weaving where she weaves taovala, mats and fihu with white pandanus only. She is self-employed and she does her weaving in her own home. Weaving is more like her daily job and it enables her to weave more products. She has been doing weaving for more than ten years now. Even though her husband and son are making an earning, Kelela does not hesitate on running her own business and making her own money.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy pandanus for her weaving.
