'anitialatia's story

'Anitialatia is 45 years old. She is a separated mother of nine children. She lives with her children at their own home. Her husband left her with the children to raise on her own.

Currently she is running a business of tapa making, where she joined a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas of different kinds once in a week.

'Anitialatia receives help from her children. She sells her tapas to relatives overseas. Since the lock-down, she sells her tapas locally. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy mulberry for her tapa making business.

Her dream is to make sure her children's needs are met so they don't feel fatherless.
