Elisiva's story

Elisiva is 19 years old. She's still single, but she has already left school. She's living at their owned home together with her parents and siblings; there are six of them altogether living in their home.

She applied for her loan from SPBD as her first loan cycle. She used her loan to buy materials for her business of making tapa. She's running her business with the help of her mother. She's motivated and taught by her mother to better know about making tapa. Even though Elisiva is still single, she's willing to run her business to help her family's living, especially helping her parents in their financial matters.

When she finishes making her tapa, she sells it out at the market to earn income for her loan repayments and also for her family. She faced challenges in lack of materials for her making tapa. Then, she had her loan and overcame her challenges. Her business is running actively. In the future, she has a vision to work hard to repay her loan and continue to benefit her family.
