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

A loan helped to buy mulberry for her tapa making and also pay for the exporting of her tapas overseas.

'Elisapeti's story

Greetings from 'Elisapeti. She is a mother and a wife. Her five children are all attending school, and her husband is still in lockdown overseas. '

Elisapeti joined a group of women in their village, and once a week, they gather and make tapas, then sell them to earn money for their families. They make more than one tapa, and they individually design their tapas before selling them. 'Elisapeti usually hired someone to design her tapas for her, but now she can manage to design her own tapas, thanks to her grandma.

She applies for this loan as capital for her business, to buy mulberry and also pay for the exporting of her tapas overseas to buyers. She is planning on sending her kids overseas so they can further their education and get a better life.
