Temaleti's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy pandanus and help to expand her house.

Temaleti's story

Meet Temaleti! She is a 62-year-old mother of seven children, and they live in their own home. Her husband is a farmer, and Temaleti manages her business, where she weaves taovala and mats together with her two daughters at their home. They sell their products at the local market and overseas, and this has been their main source of income for many years.

Temaleti's married children built their own huts around the big house where Temaleti and her husband live with the rest of their children.

Temaleti is applying for a loan to buy more pandanus for her business and also help with expanding their house so they can have more space for their grown children.
