Lu'isa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business and also help with their daily living.

Lu'isa's story

Meet Lu'isa. She is a 30-year-old mother of three, and a wife of an electrician. They live in their own home. Lu'isa runs a business weaving, where she joins a group of women in their neighborhood and together they do weaving almost every day. Weaving is their daily chore and they use both white and brown pandanus for their weaving.

She usually sells out her mats and taovala overseas, but ever since the lockdown, she has been selling out her taovala locally but with a cheaper price. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy pandanus for her weaving. Her dream is for her children to have a better life in the future.
