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

A loan helped to hire someone to prepare her soft tapa for her.

Peleise's story

Greetings from this 64-year-old lady, name Peleise. She is a mother of two sons, and her husband is a farmer. Peleise has been running her tapa (patterns cloth) making business for many many years, and she is currently living in a new house, just built two years ago, with the money that she makes from her business.

She joined a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas. Peleise always prefers to have the larger-size tapas because it brings good money. She manages to send five to ten tapas in a month overseas and finally received enough money to build her new house. Her business makes a great change in their living.

Peleise applies for a loan to hire someone to prepare her soft tapa for her. She still manages to join the group and make tapas, but as for softening the hard mulberry, her hand is weak to do that everyday.
