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

A loan helped to buy a new wood cutter for her craft business.

Teisa's story

Teisa and her husband run a craft business of wood carving. It has been five years since they started running this business, and their six children benefit from the work of their hands. They live in a two-bedroom house, and their dream is that one day their family's lives will improve and they will have a better house for their children to grow up in.

They rent a room in the local market area, where their sculptures are displayed for random customers to be interested in. They carve different sculptures and when the border was still open, tourists took interest in their work. They also export their sculptures overseas. Sadly, their wood cutter burnt off due to a short, and Teisa has applied for a loan hoping to buy a new wood cutter for their business. Your lending will be much appreciated by Teisa.
