Tua's story

This is Tua. She is 62 years old and still manages to run her tapa-making business well. She has four grownup children and they are all working and make a good living. Her children could provide for her, but she does not allow it. She believes that she can still make her own money.

Tua joins a group of women in their village to make tapas. She sells some of her tapas and saves some. She has been a hardworking mother for many years. She educated her children with her tapa-making earnings, and now they have their own careers because of her. She is a good influencer in the group that she joins. A loan will help Tua with her business allowing her to buy mulberry for her tapa making.
