Manatu's story

Meet Manatu. She is 27 years old, and she is still single. Manatu lives with her elderly parents, and she runs her tapa making business to help provide for them. Her other siblings helps with the providing, but Manatu wants to make sure that she is responsible for their caring first.

She joined a small group of women in her neighbor where they practice making tapas in every week. Manatu buys her tapas, designs for it, decorates it, and then sell it both locally and to her siblings overseas. She also makes soft tapas, and sell it to some of their group members.

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