Siu'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 business and also buy a fakapa tutu machine so that her work will be easier.

Siu's story

Siu still manages to run her business very well. She is a divorced mother of two, and they all live together in their own home. Siu still manages her weaving and tapa making business, but with this loan, she is focusing on her tapa making business, for it needs financial help.

She joins a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas then sell them to earn income for their families. Siu still provides for her two children and their families. She needs a loan to buy mulberry for her tapa making business and also a fakapa tutu machine, which is a machine that turns mulberry into soft tapas, without the need for women to hand soften the hard mulberry.

If she has one of these machines, she believes that her business will increase and she can also prepares soft tapas and sell them. Help Siu support her business so she can continue providing for her family.
