A loan helped to buy pandanus leaves for her weaving business.

Veisinia's story

Veisinia weaves ta’ovala to sell so that she can earn money for her family. She is a mother of four children and married to a farmer. They currently live at the house of her in-laws. Veisinia currently manages her business with help from her mother-in-law. She uses only white pandanus leaves for her weaving business as part of her daily routine. After she prepares her children for school, Veisinia spends the rest of the day weaving. It takes a week or two to complete one ta’ovala. She sells her products to random customers and also advertises to her friends and relatives who live overseas.

Veisinia and her husband hope to have their own home where their children can grow up. She will use this loan to buy pandanus leaves for her weaving business.
