A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Lynda's story

Lynda is a 40-year-old mother to her five children. She is married to a farmer, and they live in their own home.

Lynda joins a group of women in her village, and together they perform weaving in a hall, almost every day. They weave mats and taovala, mainly using brown pandanus only. She sells out her weaving at the local market and also to her relatives overseas. Lynda's weaving is her family's primary source of income. She pays for her children's school fees and also helps her husband with their daily expenses. Lynda's business runs very well and the only factor she usually faces that slows her business down is the lack of pandanus.

With this loan, it will help solve her problem of the lack of pandanus. She dreams of a better future for her children through better education.
