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

A loan helped to buy pandanus leaves for her family's weaving business.

Suliana's story

Suliana is a single woman who lives with her parents and siblings. She dropped out of school at an early age and then joined her mother in weaving. They weave together at their home where they produce ta'ovala [traditional Tongan garments] and mats. These products are then sold so that her family can earn money and make a living.

Suliana is applying for a loan to help her family’s weaving business by purchasing pandanus leaves. Her dream is for her other siblings to finish their education so they can take a different path from her.
