A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

'akanesi's story

This is 'Akanesi. She is 28 years old and married with three children. 'Akanesi runs a weaving business; she weaves with white pandanus because they are softer and easier to use and are more valuable. Her business provides for most of their family's expenses. She usually sells her taovala to her relatives overseas, but due to the lock-down, she sells locally. 'Akanesi applied for a loan to buy pandanus for her weaving business. Her dream is for her children to grow up in a financially secure environment.
