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

A loan helped to buy raw materials for her business and also to help to renovate their bathroom.

Ma'ata's story

This mother's name is Ma'ata. She is married to a carpenter with six children.

They are living at their own two bedroom house, with the boys having their little hut outside the big house, while the girls share a room.

Ma'ata's daily routine is making kiekie and selling it at the different markets. She also sells her kiekie through social media, where she receives many buyers.

Her daughters help her with her business by braiding the materials for their mother to make the kiekie. In a week, she can make five to six kiekie, from hibiscus materials.

She also makes kiekie from coconut materials, but it costs more. Ma'ata wants to make sure that her business operates very well so that it can provide for her family.

With this loan, she will be able to buy materials for her business and also to renovate their bathroom to a better situation.
