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

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

Toilose's story

Meet To'ilose. She is 36 years old and married with five children. She lives in her own home. To'ilose runs a tapa making business. She joined a group of women in her village, and together they make tapas of different size and types.

To'ilose has been running this business for more than five years now, and it contributes to her family's daily income. She sells her tapas to her relatives overseas. But since the lock-down started, she just sells her tapas locally but with a cheaper price.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy mulberry for her tapa making business. Her only dream is for her children to have a better life in the future.
