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

A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.

Lola's story

Lola has five children, and they live at their home, with her husband who is working as a carpenter. She runs her weaving business in order to help her husband in providing for their children. She and some other women in their neighborhood conduct weaving together, and it allows them speedy production. Together they weave taovala and mats. She normally sells out her weaving locally, but overseas mainly to relatives. Lola dreams of a brighter future for her children through education, and she will work hard to implement her dream. This loan she applied for is to buy pandanus for the continuing of her weaving business.
