Mavaetangi's story

Meet Mavaetangi. She is 54 years old, and she is a single lady who takes care of her elderly mother.

Mavaetangi runs a business of making tapa (a patterned cloth) and also selling soft tapa. She is a member of a group of women in their village, where they gather once a week and make tapas. Mavaetangi sells her tapas to her relatives overseas, and also to some local customers. For her soft tapas, she sells them to the women in their tapa group, and also at the local market.

She makes sure that she runs her own business so that she can make her own income and care for her mother.

With this loan, Mavaetangi will be able to buy mulberry for her tapa making business.
