'alilia's story

Greetings from 'Alilia. She is 58 years old, married to a farmer with only one son. 'Alilia runs a business of making tapa, where she joins a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas once every week. She also learned the skills of designing tapas, and not only can she make tapas but others also hire her to design their tapas. She applies for a loan to buy mulberry for her tapa making business. Their priority is to renovate their house and build a new one, before their son gets married.
