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

A loan helped to buy new tutua for her tapa making business.

Savelio's story

Meet Savelio. She is 24 years old and married with three kids. Her husband is a farmer and he supports Savelio's business by growing their own mulberry plantation.

Savelio joins her mother and sisters in making tapas. They have their own tapa making group at their parent's house. Together they make tapas, not once but twice a week. Because there are just few of them, they then decided to run their tapa making twice a week.

Shown in her photo is her newly finished tapa, that just needs added design before selling it. She sells her tapas to local buyers and also to her sisters-in-law overseas. She also prepares soft tapas and sells at the local market for extra income. Her business is the primary income for her family.
