Valingi's story

Valingi is the 37-year-old married mother of six children.
All six of them are currently attending school. Her children's education is the most important matter for her because she wants a better future for her children

Valingi had a loan at SPBD and used it to buy her some mulberry for her tapa making business. Valingi's business is the main source of income for her little family.

She is self-employed and doesn't hire anyone to help in preparing her mulberry for the tapa. Sometimes she faces challenges when she's lacking mulberry.

She joined in a group making tapa and they are working together for the speedy productivity of tapa. She sells out her tapa at the market to earn money helping her family and also for her loan repayment.

Her vision is to keep on running her business to provide some more money for her family's needs in the future.
