Telusila's story

Meet Telusila. She is 37 years old and married with four children. She lives with her family and her parents in their own home. Telusila runs a handicraft business where she makes and sells a type of Tongan dress called a kiekie. Telusila sells kiekie at the local market and she has also started to advertise her work on the internet. She now has customers from overseas who are very interested in her designs and patterns.

Telusila is requesting a loan with SPBD to purchase raw materials for her handicraft business. She will use her loan to purchase enough materials to make and sell kiekie.
