Taufa'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.

Taufa's story

Taufa is 46 years old. She is a mother of six children, and a wife of a farmer. Taufa and her two daughters run a business of tapa making. They also have another business which is making kiekie, but this loan was for her tapa making only. Taufa and her daughters join 10 other women in their village, and together they make tapas once a week. Taufa and her two daughters also decorate their own tapas and then sell them out to anyone who might be interested in them.

She applied for a loan to buy mulberry for her business because one of her customers just ordered five 52-ft tapas, and these tapas require lots of mulberry.
