A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Liongi's story

Liongi, a 56-year-old widow, runs a weaving business. She has seven children, four of who are married and have their own families. Liongi is left with the three youngest to look after by herself.

Liongi weaves ta'ovala and mats, then sells them at the local market to earn money for her children. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy pandanus for her weaving.

Liongi is a hard-working mother who wants what is best for her children. She faces a very hard time because her husband used to be the sole provider for their family. When he passed away, Liongi understood that her children now depend on only her to provide for their daily needs.

Help support Liongi in providing for her children by funding her loan.
