A loan helped to purchase efficient pandanus for her weaving business.

Waikiki's story

Waikiki is a 40-year-old mother to her eight children. She is married to a farmer, and they live in their own little home. She is a weaver, and she spends her time weaving on her own at home and taking care of her baby. She also runs a tapa making business, but she is applying for this loan to be used for her weaving business only.

She weaves ta'ovala and mats, then sells them out through social media and also to her relatives overseas. She doesn't always sell out her weaving locally because she is earning more money by selling it overseas, where she has lots of buyers.

Her business is her family's primary source of income, and Waikiki tends to keep both businesses running to provide for her family, especially her children's educational needs. With this loan, she will be able to purchase efficient pandanus for her weaving business.

This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
