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

A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Lesieli's story

Lesieli is a single mother of one child. She lives with her child at her sister's house. Lesieli and her sister run a business of weaving where they weave together and earn money for their living. Their weaving is their main source of income. Their weaving business is running very well, but the only challenge they usually face is the lack of pandanus. Lesieli applies for a loan to buy enough pandanus for their weaving. Doing weaving together helps them buy enough time for their weaving and also faster. They sell their weaving at the local market, their home, and also to their relatives overseas. Lesieli's dream is to be able to provide for the need of her daughter without failing, so she could not feel fatherless.
