A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Maleta's story

Maleta is a widow who raised her 10 grown-up children with her weaving business. She is a sole weaver, and she weaves taovala to then sell to earn money for a living. Now she remains with her two youngest only, and they attend the university. Her other grown-up children have their own families and careers, and they wanted to help her but she still manages to run her business and make her own money.

Maleta applies for a loan to buy pandanus for her weaving. She is proud to be an independent woman, and she wants to stay that way.
