Telesia's story

Telesia is a 51-year-old mother to ten grown-ups. Her husband is a farmer, and they only live with their three youngest children. Currently she is a member of a tapa making group of women in their village, and once a week they make tapas of different kinds and sizes. Together with the help of her two daughters, she designs her tapas and others even hire them to design their tapas for them. She applies for a loan to buy mulberry for her tapa making business. Her only dream is to help her three youngest to finish their education so they can pursue better opportunities in the future.
