Taufa's story

Meet Taufa. She is 45 years old and she is a single mother to six children. Taufa lives together with her children in their own home.

She currently runs a business making tapa. She joins a group of women in her village and they conduct the tapa making once in a week. Together they make different sizes and types of tapa. Taufa also self-decorates her tapas, then sells them at the local market. She also has other businesses but this loan is focused on her tapa-making business only. Taufa has been running this business for many years, and it was passed down from her mother to her. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy mulberry and pay for her son's school fees.
