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

A loan helped to buy mulberry bark for her tapa-making business.

Meliana's story

Meet Meliana. She is a 42-year-old mother of seven children and the wife of a farmer. They live in their own home, and her daughters helped her in running her tapa-making business.

Her business contributes to the main source of income of her family. Meliana joins a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas once every week.

Her daughters helped her by preparing soft tapas and also by designing the tapas. When her tapas are ready, she sells them out to her relatives overseas.

Their vision is to improve the quality of their family's life, by running their business and making more money to implement their dream.
