Laveni's story

Laveni is 26 years old. She is a wife and a mother of three children. They live in their own home. Laveni runs a business of weaving, and she only weaves taovala and mats. When she needs urgent help, she pays women to help her with the weaving but normally she weaves on her own. Her weaving contributes to the primary earning of their family. Her eldest son attends school and she wants to make sure that she can provide for his educational needs. She sells out her weaving at the local market and also to her relatives overseas, but since the lock-down, she just sells out her weaving locally. She applies for a loan to buy pandanus for her weaving. Her dream is to become a good mother to her children and husband by being able to provide for them and be responsible.
