Merewalesi Rokocola

Merewalesi (33) is a talented weaver and proud of her work. However, her husband’s wage is barely enough to meet all their needs. She will use her loan to buy the best quality dried Pandanus ("voivoi")leaves and materials to weave her decorative and functional mats. With more of her handcraft wares available for sale, Merewalesi can provide the best for her family by doing what she loves.
