A loan helped to buy pandanus leaves and to hire two workers to help with her weaving business.


'Alisi's story

'Alisi is a wife and mother who continues to operate her weaving business without fail. Her business is growing, so she is applying for another loan to buy pandanus leaves and to hire two workers to help her weave so that she can fulfill her customers’ orders on time.

'Alisi and her sister weave ta’ovala, mats, and fihu from white pandanus leaves. She and her husband were able to restore their pandanus farm through replanting after it was devastated by a cyclone. However, the pandanus has not matured enough to use for weaving. 'Alisi sells her products locally and also ships them overseas. Her plan is to weave more products, send them overseas, and earn enough money to start renovations on her house.

She believes that she can realize her dreams and plans with support from her business.
