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

A loan helped to buy raw materials such as hibiscus and coconut materials for making kiekie, waist strings and traditional dancing costumes.

'ana's story

Ana is a 29-year-old mother of three children. Her husband is a farmer, and they live at their own home.

'Ana makes kiekie, waist strings and traditional dancing costumes from raw materials such as hibiscus, coconut fiber, coconut shells and sea shells. She runs her business to be able to provide for her family, because her husband can only provide crops for the family.

'Ana sell her finished products at the local market and from their home to random customers. She applied for a loan to buy more raw materials for her craft business.

To be able to upgrade her family's standard of living is her dream.
