Pua's story

Meet Pua. She is 49 years old, and she is a mother of eight children and a wife of a tractor driver. Her husband was the sole provider for their family, but since their children are growing up, his wages cannot cover all their expenses. Therefore Pua decided to start and run a business in order to help her husband in providing for their family. Pua runs a business of weaving, and she mainly weaves taovala and mats with white pandanus. Her eldest daughter joins her for weaving, and they do their weaving almost every day. Pua applies for a loan to buy pandanus for her weaving. She is still holding on to her dream of expanding her business to earn more income for the education and future of her youngest kids.
