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

A loan helped to buy new tutua, ike, and mulberry for her tapa making business.

Pilimilose's story

Pilimilose is 35 years old. She is married with four children. Her husband is a farmer, and they live in their own home.

Pilimilose runs a tapa making business. She and some other women in her village join together and make tapas of different size and types. She stated the business five years ago and it has been her primary source of income. She also prepares soft tapa and sells it to the women who need it. Her husband grew his own mulberry plantation but it was fully destroyed by T.C. Harriet. She is applying for a loan in order to buy new tutua, ike, and also mulberry for her business.

Her vision is to build a new house for her family.
