Lu'isa's story

Lu'isa is now 21 with a child. She is married to a farmer, and they live at her husband's house. She still conducts her weaving business, and she joins her her sister and mother-in-law at their own home for weaving. Together they weave mats, using brown pandanus only. Normally she sells her weaving locally, but now her mother-in-law helps her have an overseas buyer to work with where she will be sending her mats. With her mind still longing to return and finish her education, Lu'isa believe that one day she will fulfil her dream. Her weaving is her little family's main source of income. She applies for a loan to buy pandanus and a big pot for boiling her pandanus and making it ready for weaving.
