Fololi's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy mulberry for her tapa-making business.

Fololi's story

This is Fololi. She is 31 years old. She is married and has five children. Her husband is a farmer. Fololi owns and operates a tapa-making business.

She is a member of a tapa-making group in the village. They meet once every week. During their tapa-making, they make different types and sizes of tapa. Fololi not only makes tapa, but she also sells soft tapa and decorates tapa. This is an extra flow of money into her family.

Her business is her family's main finance source. She sells her tapas in the market and overseas. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy mulberry for her business.
