A loan helped to buy some pandanus for her weaving business.

Lutu's story

Meet Lutu. She is 35 years old and married with three children. Lutu and her family live together with 6 other family members in a three bedroom house. Their living arrangements are tight.

Lutu and some other women in their village run a weaving business together. Working as a group brings many benefits. They make products quickly so Lutu is able to meet the deadlines of her customers. She only weaves taovala which she sells at the local market and from her home. This business contributes to providing for her family.

Lutu applied for a loan to buy some pandanus for her weaving business. She has a vision for her business to continue running and earn money for her children's education.
