Ane's story

Meet Ane. She is 55 years old, and she is a mother to her five grown up children. They live in their own home with her husband still stuck overseas due to the lock-down.

Ane joined a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas and then sell them to earn income for their families.

Currently she provides for her children with her business income only, and her children help her in return by preparing the soft tapas. Not only does she make tapas and sell them, but she can also perform tapa design, and some of the women hire her to design their tapas. Tapas are designed in specific ways, according to the type of occasion on which they will be presented. Ane has the knowledge and skills for designing the tapas in any designs required. They have no vehicle and she used to borrow the neighbor's vehicle for business and family use.

She decided to apply for a loan to buy mulberry and also to make a deposit on a vehicle for her own family. Help Ane with her plan by lending her your money.
