Lu'isa's story

Lu'isa is a mother of eight who weaves mats, taovala [traditional clothing], and fihu [mat with a specific pandanus], and then sells them to local and overseas customers. She and her family live in a small two-bedroom house where they share the rooms. She is joined by a group of women in their village, and together they conduct their weaving five days a week. When her weavings are ready, she decorates them before selling them. Lu'isa always dreamed of a bigger and better house for her family, and it seemed like her dream has come to life. Currently, their house is under construction, and Lu'isa has applied for this loan to help with their house construction.
