A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

'Alisi's story

Alisi currently runs a weaving business. She is 47 years old and her husband is a farmer. They have 3 children who have all finished high school. 'Alisi weaves taovala, mats, and fihu with white pandanus only. The reason for using white pandanus only is because it is softer and easier for weaving.

Alisi's little sister joins her for weaving and it has become more like their daily routine. She sells her weaving at the local market. 'Alisi applied for a loan to buy pandanus for her weaving because her raw pandanus were destroyed by the cyclone that hit Tonga in April.
