'Amelia's story

'Amelia is now married, and they live at her parent's house. She and her mother continue with their tapa-making business. They joined a group of women in their village and together they design and make tapas, then sell them to make a living. 'Amelia is very dedicated to her work. Even thou she is now married and her husband is working, 'Amelia has already found the spirit of independence in her and she believes in it.

This loan will help to purchase mulberry from the market. Not only is she involved in making tapas, but she also prepares soft tapas and sells it to local tapa women who might need it. To build a brighter and better future for her two children is her dream.
