A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Tafia's story

Tafia is 19 years old. She is a school drop-out, and her mother taught her weaving skills so she would be able to provide for her own one day when she is no longer around.

She dropped out off school due to personal reasons, but she is not giving up on striving for her own good. She and her mother conduct weaving together, and Tafia only weaves taovala because she is a beginner. Her mother helps with advertising her weaving, and Tafia shows great interest in this business. She has started to show independence and she likes the fact that she can make her own money.

The only factor that regularly affects her business is the lack of pandanus, and they cannot afford to buy enough because of its high prize in the market. A loan will help Tafia purchase sufficient pandanus for her weaving.
