Tapenisi's story

Tapenisi is a 48 years old mother of two sons. Her husband is a carpenter, and Tapenisi manages to run her own business and make her own money. Her eldest son is in the university and the youngest is in his final year in high school.

Tapenisi's business is making tapa. She does it with ten other women in their village. Her husband's wages can cover most of their daily expenses but not all. Tapenisi's business pays for both her son's school fees and tuition. She also plans on saving for both of them, for their further studies. She sells her tapas at the local market but mainly to some customers overseas. Tapenisi wishes to use her loan money to buy mulberry and designing brushes for her tapas. A prosperous future for her two sons is her only dream.
