'olivia's story

This is 'Olivia. She is a 59-year-old mother of seven, grandmother to twelve and a wife of a farmer. 'Olivia runs a business of tapa making, and for more than twenty years, her family has benefited from her business.

She joined a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas once in every week. The COVID-19 pandemic affects her business market because she usually sells her tapas overseas, but due to the closed border, she will have to sell her tapas locally for a cheaper price.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy mulberry for her tapa-making business. 'Olivia also sells soft tapa as extra earning for her family.

Her dream is to renovate their house and build a better and stronger house.
