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

A loan helped to buy some more pandanus and help with the building of their new house.

'iva's story

Greetings again from 'Iva. She is now 65 years old, and she lives with her husband and some of their grown up children at their own home in the island of Vava'u.

'Iva is still managing her weaving business well, and she even has a group of women who weave for her. Her craft business still also runs but she mainly focusses her loans on her weaving business. She has more customers now and she is very dedicated to her work. She hires women to weave for her, in order to keep up with the demand of her customers.

Last year they started renovating their house, and they have not enough money to finish up the work, but her weaving really helps with keeping up with the renovating. She plans on using this loan to buy pandanus for her weaving and also help with the building of their new house.

A dream worth living for is what she believes in. All because of the business she runs and the money she earns from her loans.
