Total loan: $1,000


Veitongo, Tongatapu, Tonga / Arts

Talita'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 and also pay women to help with her weaving.

Talita's story

Married to a farmer, Talita is a 42-year-old mother of ten children, six of whom are in school. The family lives in their own home. She runs a weaving business that makes taovala and mats, selling them to earn money for her family.

Talita is a member of a weaving group in their village and is very dedicated to her business because she knows that her family depends on it. She received an order for ten mats to be picked in the second week of December, and so applied for a loan to buy pandnus and pay more women to help finish her orders.

Talita still holds on to her dream of educating her children for a better future.
