'amelia's story

Amelia is 18 years old. She is a single mother and she lives with her daughter at her parent's house. Her mother helps her in taking care of her daughter.

Amelia joins her mother for weaving, in order to provide for her child. Together they weave taovala and mats, then sell it out at the local market and to relatives overseas. Their weaving is their primary source of income. Amelia joined the SPBD loan program to buy enough pandanus for their weaving. A good life and a brighter future for her daughter is her goal and vision.
