Taotafa's story

Meet Ta'otafa.

She is a 54-year-old mother of four children and the wife of a farmer. They live at their own home, and three of their children are currently in school.

Ta'otafa runs a business of tapa making, and also a plantation. She joins a group of women in their village for tapa making, while her husband takes care of their plantation. They make different types and sizes of tapas, then Ta'otafa sells her products at the local market and also to her relatives overseas.

For their plantation, she helps with marketing their crops every Saturday. Her business is running very actively because she is very committed to it. She has been running this business for more than a decade, and it has been her family's primary source of income.

She is planning on using her loan money to buy mulberry, fertilizer, and chemicals for their business.
