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

A loan helped to buy brown pandanus for her mat weaving business.

Siutaisa's story

This is Siutaisa. She is a single lady who helps her mother with weaving. Together they only weave brown mats and sell them locally, but mainly to overseas customers.

Siutaisa dropped out of school at a very young age, and her mother taught her the weaving skills so she can have something to depend on with her life.

It is their daily routine to weave, and it benefits their work. Not only can they weave more mats, but they also finish in a small amount of time.

With this loan, she and her mother will be able to buy efficient brown pandanus for their weaving. Siutaisa believes that she can perfect her future with the work of her hand and be independent.
