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

A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Siutiti's story

Siutiti weaves taovala and mats, using white pandanus only, and sells them to earn money for her three children. Her husband is a farmer, and they live in a small hut in the backyard of her parents-in-laws' house.

Weaving is her daily routine, and she sells her weaving at the local market but mainly to overseas customers and relatives. She and her husband have occupied a piece of land of their own, but they still don't have enough money to build a house. She plans on weaving lots of mats and taovala and export them overseas, for that is the only way they can earn large amounts of money, but she does not have enough pandanus. Therefore she is applying for a loan to buy sufficient pandanus in order to implement her plan.

Support Siutiti with her plan in order to enable them to build their own home.
