Toilose's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy some more mulberry for her business of making tapa.

Toilose's story

Toilose is 35 years old, a mother of five children, she's married with a farmer husband. Two of her children are currently attending school. This is her seventh loan cycle from SPBD. She's running her business of tapa making. Her business is located at her own home in her village.

She used her loan to buy raw materials for her business in order to provide some more earnings for her family and also for her business. Last February a very strong cyclone struck Tonga and affected most Tongan people's lives. Toilose's house's roof was damaged by the cyclone, so she's working hard in her business to earn some more income to helps renovate her family's house and also to provide a good future for her children.
