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

A loan helped to buy a big pot for boiling the raw pandanus.

Hola's story

This is Hola. She is 25 years old and married with three kids. They all live at their own home.

Hola joined a group of women in their village, and together they conduct weaving in a hall. Weaving is their daily routine, and they weave in a hall almost every day. Together they weave different products such as mats, taovala and fihu, then they decorate their own weaving according to their own likes. Hola usually weaves taovala and mats only. She sells her weaving at the local market to earn money for her family.

Hola applied for a loan to buy a new big pot for boiling the raw pandanus. Her husband grows their own pandanus trees, and he also helps Hola in boiling the raw pandanus. A good standard of living for her children is what she dreams of.
