Tilolou'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 to also help finish her new house.

Tilolou's story

Greetings from Tilolou again. She is now a widow, 58 years old and living with her youngest daughter. Her husband passed last year, which was a great loss to her and the family. Tilolou still managed to run her business and make money for herself and her youngest daughter. Her daughter attends university, and she pays for her tuition with the money earned from Tilolou's business.

She joins a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas of different size and types. Tilolou sells her tapas from her home and also to her relatives overseas. She is applying for a loan to buy mulberry for her tapa business and also to help with the finishing of her new house that was just built.
