Nau's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy mulberry for her tapa making business and also raw materials for her handicraft business.
Nau is 55 years old. She is a mother of six children and a wife of a carpenter. They live in their own home. Nau runs a business of making tapa cloth and handicrafts. Her husband and children help her with her business. She joins a group of women in their village and together they make tapa of different sizes, but they only meet once a week. Nau has the rest of the week to make her handicraft business. She makes kiekie from hibiscus and coconut materials and then sells it at the local market. Some people in their village really like her handicraft and they use her services for any family matters that might need crafts. Nau is a very reliable member of the center and she is very dedicated to her business. Her family has benefited from her business for so many years. She applied for a loan to buy mulberry for her tapa making business and also raw materials for her crafts.
