A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Uaite's story

This is Uaite. She is 25 years old, married to a farmer, with two children. Uaite and her family live in an iron house. She currently runs a weaving business. She joins a group of women and together they weave taovala and mats from white pandanus. Weaving is more like their daily routine and it is running very well. She first started her business two years ago, when she joined the SPBD loan program and earned the money to start her business. Now her business still runs and it is her family's main source of income. She is applying for a loan again in order to buy pandanus for her business. Uaite's vision is for her family's standard of living to be improved, starting with their house. Her children need to grow up in a secured and good environment.
