Sisilia's story

Sisilia is a 69-year-old single mother to seven grown-ups. Her youngest son attends university, and she pays for his school fees with the money she earns from her business of sewing and crafts. She raised her children to whom they have become today through her business.

She runs a sewing and crafts business, but this loan is specifically for her crafts business. She makes kiekie from hibiscus and coconut materials, and she also makes tauolunga costumes and sells them through social media.

Sisilia is a hardworking mother who is very dedicated to her work and a good role model in the center. She repays her loans well and also helps others who have trouble with repaying their loans. She motivates women to run their own businesses and be successful.

She wishes to use her loan money to purchase enough materials for her crafts business.
