A loan helped to buy pandanus for her weaving business.


Malia's story

Malia is applying for this loan to buy pandanus for her weaving business. She is a single mother to her three boys, and they live at her sister's house.

Malia and her sister run a weaving business, where together they weave taovala that are worn to funerals and sell them to local and overseas customers. Her sister is also a single mother, and weaving is their main source of income. Everyday after their kids leave for school, they start with their business right away.

Malia dreams of changing her children's lives so they will not follow the same path, but walk on a better one. With her business she will be able to implement a good plan for her children.
