'ana's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy soft tapa for her tapa making business.

'ana's story

Ana is a 23 year old mother of two children. She just gave birth to her second one, and she lives with her family at her parents' house.

Currently, she is a tapa maker, and her mother helps her with both her business and her children. 'Ana cannot prepare her soft tapa for now due to maternity reasons, so she applied for a loan to buy soft tapa for her tapa making business. Her mother is representing 'Ana in her tapa making group of women until 'Ana regains her strength to join her tapa group again. A good life for her two children to grow up in, and a home for her and her family is what she dreams of. Her husband usually travels overseas and sells the tapas to his family. They got married last year and he is still locked down overseas.
