Vika's story

This is Vika. She is 36 years old, and she is married with five children. They all live at their own home.

Vika runs a business of preparing and selling soft tapa.

She does not join a group of women and make tapa, instead she prepares soft tapa and sell it out at the local market. She also have customers that requires her to make them soft tapas, in exchange for a whole tapas.

Vika uses her loan money to buy mulberry bark, soften it and prepare it to be a soft tapa, then sell it out. She does this work at her own home, without any need to attend to a group of women.

Her dream is to continue in running her business to earn enough money for the education of her children.
