Siale's story

Siale is 67 years old. She is s a widow with three children and two grandchildren. She's currently running her business making tapa.

She requested a loan from SPBD as her tenth loan cycle and used it to buy mulberry to make tapa and renovate her house.

She joined a group making different types of tapa in her village. They sell the finished products in the market. She uses the income to care for her family as she still feels responsible for them, including her grandchildren.

She has been running the business for many years and does not have any challenges. Even though she's getting older, she's still confident she can work hard for her business.

She's looking forward to continuing to run her business and in convincing others to run their business so that they can be like her and benefit their families in the future.
