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

Folauhola's story

This is Folauhola. She is a mother of three children, and a wife of a farmer. They live at their own home.

Folauhola runs a business of making tapas, and she is a member of a tapa group in their village. Together they make lots of tapas, then sell them to earn money as a mean of income for their families. Her business is her family's primary source of income.

Their sort of life is not easy, they don't have much but with the business and the money earned from the business, it has made a difference to the life of their family.

Folauhola sees the loan program as an opportunity to complete her incomplete by borrowing money to buy enough mulberry, for that is the only challenge she usually face, which is the not enough mulberry, but the loan program minimize that challenge and enable her to buy enough mulberry. She has few more steps towards her dream of a new house for her family.
