Heiloni supplements her husband’s farming income by making tapa. The inner bark of the paper-mulberry tree is used to make tapa, the traditional Tongan cloth. It is sun-dried then soaked, before being beaten into the thin pulp that becomes the finished fabric. It is given as gifts at weddings and funerals, or used for clothing, blankets and costumes. Heiloni is seeking a loan so she can buy the raw materials (feta’aki) to make tapa. She will use the extra income to meet the education and everyday needs of her child, still in primary school.
