A loan helped to buy pandanus and ribbons for her weaving business.

'aila's story

Aila is 23 years old. She is a single mother of two children. She lives with her two kids together with her parents and three other siblings. 'Aila became a single mom at a very young age, and she dropped out of school. Her mother taught her how to weave so she can provide for her daughter. Now 'Aila can weave any taovala or mats or fihu and decorate it herself.

She applied for a loan to buy pandanus for her weaving and also ribbons for decorating her fihu and mats. Her dream is for her two kids to grow up and live a good life and be educated.
