Seini's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more mulberry to make tapa.

Seini's story

Meet Seini, a 52-year-old mother of nine children. Her husband is a farmer. They live in a three-bedroom house with their two youngest children.

Seini runs a business making tapa. She joins a group of women in her village, and together they make tapas of different size. Seini has been running this business for many years now, and in addition to making money for her family, it is also a part of her life.

Seini started practicing making tapa when her children were still growing up. She dedicated herself to her business and her family benefits from it. Making tapa is a very important part of their life. Some of her children reside overseas, and when someone needs tapas, they contact Seini right away.

Seini hopes to use her loan money to buy mulberry for her tapa making business.
