'alisi's story

Meet 'Alisi. She is 41 years old and married with one son. They live in their own home with her parents-in-law.

'Alisi runs a business of tapa making and it was her mother-in-law who taught her how to make tapa. Now that she is old, 'Alisi is now able to run her own business and make money for her family.

'Alisi joins a group of women in their church and, on every Friday, they conduct their tapa making. The size of tapa they make depends on the customer's order.

Sometimes, 'Alisi's customers deposit half of the amount to her and fully pay the rest when the product is ready.

'Alisi applied for a loan in order to to buy mulberry for her business and, also, to pay for her son's school fees.
