Simaili's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more mulberry for her business.
Greetings from Simaili. She is a 34-year-old divorced woman without children. Simaili lives together with her little sister and their father. She is responsible for both of them. Currently she is running a tapa making business, and together with a group of women, they make tapas once a week, availing the rest of the week to prepare their own soft tapas. Simaili sells her tapas to her relatives overseas for a good living. She also sells soft tapa at the local market. She runs her business and tries to maintain it in order to provide for her little sister and their father. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy mulberry for her tapa making business. Her dream is to continue to run her business and provide for her father and sister.
