Kilisitina's story

Meet Kilisitina. She is 36 years old and she has six children to raise while her husband is stuck overseas due to the lockdown.

Kilisitina runs her weaving business well. She weaves taovala and fihu, using white pandanus only. She is self-employed and she only hires a helper when she has many to weave. With her business, she is able to provide for and to cover their expenses without relying on her husband to remit money.

When Kilisitina finishes with her weaving she advertises her products through social media and she receives and meets new customers there. Her business not only provides for her family but also repays her loan without failing.

This loan will used to buy pandanus for her weaving.

Her dream is to continue with her business and to continue providing for her children without failing.
