Manu's story

Manu is a 43-year-old mother of seven children, and a wife of a carpenter. They live at their own home. Manu runs a business weaving, and her business helps her husband in providing for their children. She weaves mats with brown pandanus. She started her business a few years back, and up to the present, her family have benefited from her business. Manu is applying for a loan to buy brown pandanus for her weaving. She only joins a group of women when she needs help with her weaving but currently she weaves on her own at her home. Her dream is to make sure that her children are brought up well and that they can survive on their own in the future.
