A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving, and also to help with her kids' school fees.


Teisa's story

Teisa is now 39 years old and has five children. Her husband still works as a farmer, and they live in their own home.

Currently she runs a weaving business, and she is self-employed. She only hires women to help her with her weaving when she needs urgent help. Teisa prefers working on her own for her own freedom, and so no one can damage or ruin her weaving.

She sells her weaving locally and also overseas. Her business provides benefits for her family. Not only can she weave for her children but she can also earn good money from her weaving to help them financially.

Teisa is applying for a loan to buy pandanus [raw materials from plants used for weaving] for her weaving, and also to help with her kids' school fees. A brighter future through education for her children is their only dream.
